This Angel Cake (Domestic Gothess) fills three sponge cakes with vanilla buttercream. The blogger at Domestic Gothess is a baking genius, and has managed to create two tea time treats made from plant-based ingredients. Nostalgia galore! Her Battenberg cake (first created in 1884 to celebrate the marriage of Queen Victoria’s granddaughter with Prince Philip’s grandmother) is a light almond sponge wrapped in Marzipan.
Before cooking, read up on food safety for people & pets (many human foods are unsafe around animal friends).
make your own (vegan) jaffa cakes
Jaffa cakes are real ‘childhood memory comfort food’ treats. But the store-bought ones are not really up to much by today’s standards – palm oil, refined sugar and plastic packaging. Instead, try these Vegan Jaffa Cakes (The Veg Space). Easy to make with ready-made jelly, and a blend of dark/white chocolate to make ‘milk chocolate’ topping. Make a simple orange kanten to replace the jelly.
