Tips  

Cooking Vegan? Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is vegan. If unsure about an ingredient or product, check with the manufacturer.

Organic sugar granule size can differ among manufacturers. Be sure to use a fine crystal granulated sugar for the cake; coarse crystal sugars do not dissolve as easily during baking.

We used organic powdered sugar for the frosting on this cake. For best results, sift the sugar before measuring it to remove any clumps that might have formed in the bag.

You can use an electric mixer for the frosting, but the texture and appearance will be different. We mixed by hand to retain the sheen of the frosting.
