Hi! This is a vegan cake which is inspired in "Piñata Cake" and "Red Velvet Cake".
Red Velvet Cake is obviously red coloured, but I made it with chocolate also, this is why it is rebel ;)
Step 1: INGREDIENTS
INGREDIENTS FOR THE CAKE:
- 3 beetroots (boiled)
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tbsp oil (olive oil, sunfloweer oil,...)
- 3 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 1/2 cups vegetable milk (oat, soy, nuts, rice,...)
- 3 and 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 4 tsp vinegar
- 1 tsp salt
INGREDIENTS FOR THE ICING:
- 3/4 cup vegan butter
- 2 cups icing sugar (you can process yourself the sugar in a blender)
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup vegan white chocolate
- 2 tsp apple cider vinegar-
- 1/2 tsp salt
INGREDIENTS FOR THE CHOCOLATE LAZE
- Chocolate nibs
Step 2: MAKING THE CAKE
1.- If the beets are raw, then boil for 30 minutes and. Then Puree the
2.-Pre heat the oven
3.- Mix together the dry ingredients. In a different bowl mix the wet ingredients.
4.- Now, mix all the ingredients together
5.- Place the mixing in a oven-safe mould.
6.- Bake for 45 minutes, 180ºC
Step 3: MAKING THE ICING
1.- Melt the vegan white chocolate. Note: If you want the icing without the white chocolate, you can skip this step
2.- Mix all the ingredients together.
To get a better "icing" texture, you can put it in the frozen for 30 minutes.
Step 4: ASSEMBLING THE CAKE 1
1.- Cut the cake into three layers.
Step 5: ASSEMBLING THE CAKE 2
2.- If you want the cake, like "piñata cake" style, then you need to cut a hole in the second layer. You can use a bowl to help you to cut a perfect circle in the middle of the cake.
Step 6: ASSEMBLING THE CAKE 3
3.-Place the first layer.
4.- Put the icing over the first layer.
5.- Now place the second layer (the one with the hole)
6.- Spread the icing over this second layer.
7.- Put inside the hole chocolates, fruits,candies,... whatever you like
8.- Place the last cake layer.
9.-Cover the whole cake with the rest of the icing.
Step 7: CAKE DECORATION
To decorate the cake you can add strawberries, blueberries, chocolate, ..
I also added a CHOCOLATE LAZE:
- Melt the chocolate nibs.
- Put the chocolate into a pastry bag
- "Draw" with the chocolate over a baking sheet.
- Wait until it gets chill.
- Now you can place it along the cake, being very careful
THANK YOU SO MUCH! I HOPE YOU ENJOY IT
