Saturday morning birthday cake baking, consisting of a cookie dough layer, followed by a double dark chocolate ice cream layer, followed by peanut butter frosting, followed by a chocolate drizzle. Let me tell you, this turned into a fanTAStic cake! It's crazy weird to believe that it's 100% gluten-free and vegan, but it works.
Three things I need to say about this cake:
1. The ice cream layer tastes like coconut, due to the coconut milk (weirrrrd.) If you're not into that, I"m sure you could use another type of"milk."
2. The parchment paper stuck to the bottom layer like a mofo, so I'm just going to give the pan a good oily spray-down next time and forgo the paper altogether.
3. The cookie layer on the bottom was the BEST. I'm going to make it another time and eat it all by itself, because it deserves such attention.
Saturday afternoon was a sunny ferry ride to Seattle for VegFest 2013!
So many killer sample. I went with my sister, and this was our lunch AND dinner.
Sunday morning started out with a nice (albeit 19 degree) run. Love those sunrises.
I wish I would have gotten more pictures but my phone is out of space (not-so-perfect timing). So I should take care of that today.
Is Spring starting to sprout where you are?
