Happy Birthday Vegan Smash Cake

Happy Birthday Sonny Ray!!! Today he turns 1!!! Scott's parents are in town to celebrate with us, and we decided that a little baby smash cake would be fun. Ren had a wonderful recipe for a baby friendly cake, so I took that recipe and made it vegan with no refined sugar.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

For the cake:

1 vegan egg (1 T flax meal mixed with 3 T water - let this mixture sit for 10 min)

1/2 a ripe banana

1/2 unsweetened apple sauce

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/3 c water

Using a mixer, blend that above wet ingredients until smooth

Mix the dry ingredients in a separate bowl:

1 c almond flour or your favorite gluten free flour

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/8 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

Add the dry slowly into the wet ingredients. Blend for 2 minutes.

Prepare a 9 inch cake tin by lining the bottom with parchment paper, and coconut oil on the sides.

Pour the batter into the tin, and bake for 20 minutes. Cool for 10 min.

The cake will be thin. I let it cool completely then I took a muun chi 16 oz jar, and made four round cut outs, using the jar as a cookie cutter, creating 4 layers for the cake. Each layer was about 3/4" thick. Perfect for a baby smash cake.

Since one of Sonny's favorite foods is my muun chi Lemon Turmeric Pudding, I made an icing using the pudding.

1 c coconut flakes pulverized to tiny bits

1/2 ripe banana

1 c lemon turmeric pudding

Combine all the ingredients until you have a nice thick icing that pairs well with the cake. Slice a banana and place the slices between the layers. Ice the cake top and sides using the lemon turmeric pudding icing. Let it sit in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Light the candle, have your baby blow, and then let that little cutie pie smash away! Oh what a joyful mess!

Happy Happy Birthday Sonny Ray!!! We love you!
