I’ve got 3 exciting things to share with you today. First, a new post! This shouldn’t be all that unusual on a food blog, but considering how rarely I’ve been posting lately, I think this counts as exciting. Second, a new blog design! It was long overdue. No more of me trying to navigate code, because it’s not cute. Third, it’s my 4th blogiversary! It was a total coincidence that my new design was completed today, and I forgot about it until after I wrote this post, but Happy Blogiversary to me! I would have put a candle in this cake had I remembered.
At first, I didn’t think this cake was exciting enough to post. I’ve probably made it a hundred times. In fact, the cake itself is the same recipe of my very first blog post! It’s a cupcake recipe that comes from my favorite vegan baking book, but it also makes a great cake. There are no fancy layers here. Not that I have anything against fancy layers. I mean, fancy layers are practically my life, but sometimes a simple chocolate cake will do. Perfect for small gatherings, and even more perfect for snacking.
The frosting is a super simple veganized version of this frosting from Smitten Kitchen made in a food processor. I love it because you can just dump everything in together, hit process, and you end up with a super fluffy creamy dreamy frosting that you’ll never guess is vegan.
