The past two days have been filled with so much sadness. When I get upset and sad I tend to bake muffins. I just keep baking them and baking them some more until I have so many muffins I don’t know what to do. I find baking very therapeutic, and today I just decided to make a mini variation of my vegan and gluten free Victorian Sponge cake. It is an amuse-bouche, fancy for bite sized! I hope you will enjoy this distraction from all of the horrible things happening in this world.
I have been hearing a lot lately from some people who didn’t get a cake on their birthday, and it got me thinking…I haven’t had a proper birthday cake since 1998…seriously! So, as my birthday is just around the corner I thought, “why the hell not?” And I made my own birthday cake! So…so…sad…:(…But it’s really freakin good. If you feel lonley on your birthday too and don’t know what to do, bake this cake and you will be on such a sugar high you will be feeling a lot happier.
The reason why I decided to do a 4 layer sponge cake is because on a recent Masterchef episode, Gordon Ramsay made the contestants make a 6 layer sponge cake, and I just wanted to prove to myself I could do it and do it gluten free and vegan, minus two of the layers.
