Hello, my lovely friends! Welcome to my blog and today I have something sweet and incredibly delicious to share with you! Vanilla sponge with a fruity layer in the middle and light and vibrant frosting! If you are looking for a special dessert for any upcoming holidays, this recipe is perfect.
It’s a real treasure for this festive season. Gluten-free, vegan, and so delicious. And the best thing it’s so simple to make. The cake layers come together in the blender, so is the frosting! Thumbs up for minimal cleanup(definitely my least favourite part of cooking)
I used berries to layer this cake and rose petals to decorate it, again very simple but always looks so beautiful in my opinion. I got everything from local Waitrose branch in London, the quality of their products is fantastic, and I’m excited whenever I walk into the store because there is something new and exciting every single time. There are more detailed instructions on how to bake this cake on my stories ( if you don’t follow me already my Instagram is @myperfectgreens ) and I will save them in my highlights as well!
Happy baking to you this holiday season:)
P.S. I recommend frosting the day when you are planning to serve it.
What I usually do, I prepare everything in advance and layer the cake the day before and only put finishing touches the morning on the day when I plan to serve it. Or another option just simply smooth it out with a spatula before the gathering and add a sprinkle of rose petals to that extra special effect. The colour of the frosting stays very vibrant this way(because it’s all-natural it can oxidate a little bit if not covered properly). If you want it to be even brighter feel free to add natural colourings and make it your brightest boldest bake!
