Tips and tricks for baking this vegan Halloween cake
Soy yogurt makes a fantastic substitute for eggs in this scarily delicious vegan Halloween cake as it adds moisture and helps bind the ingredients together.
However, it is important to ensure that your soy yogurt is unsweetened and unflavored to maintain the balance of flavors in the cake. If you use sweetened soy milk, make sure you adjust the amount of sugar in the sponge or the cake will be too sweet.
Be precise when measuring the yogurt, as too much yogurt can make the cake too moist, while too little yogurt can create a dry texture.
How to decorate a spider web cake
This vegan Halloween cake is covered in a layer of fondant frosting and decorated with intricate spider web designs. However, covering cakes with fondant can be a bit tricky if you’ve never done it before.
Here are some tips to help you achieve a smooth surface with fondant.
First, make sure your cake is smooth and level before spreading a thin layer of vegan buttercream on top as a crumb to seal in all the crumbs and help the fondant adhere.
You will then knead the fondant until it is pliable and smooth, using the powdered sugar to keep it from sticking to your surface.
Next, roll out the fondant on a clean surface dusted with powdered sugar to the desired thickness, usually about 1/8 to 1/4 inch.
You may need to get some help for the next stay as you will be gently lifting the rolled fondant with a rolling pin and flipping it over the cake. Start from the top and work your way down, smoothing out any air bubbles or wrinkles with your hands.
Finally, use a sharp knife or pizza cutter to trim the excess fondant from the bottom of the cake before decorating with the spider web.
Are Oreos vegan?
The star of the show is the fluffy Oreo buttercream that binds the layers together, but if you’re wondering if Oreos are vegan, then don’t worry because they contain no animal ingredients.
