  • Summary

    This classic funfetti cake is both vegan and gluten-free, but out-of-this-world delicious. It is lacking in nothing and full of everything we love in a party cake. Sweet, moist, light, delicious and topped with a wonderful sweet frosting. This one kids, and adults, will love!

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 cups (168 g) blanched almond flour (See below NOTE)
    • 1 1/2 cups (240 g) white rice flour, I use Bob's Red Mill (brown rice flour does not work here, the white is crucial for structure and taste)
    • 3/4 cup (144 g) potato starch, not potato flour
    • 4 teaspoons double-acting baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
    • 1 1/4 cups (440 g) pure maple syrup
    • 1 1/4 cups (326 g) "lite" coconut milk
    • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract (30 ml)
    • 6 tablespoons (72 g) vegan sprinkles (I used this brand, they are gorgeous!)
    • 2 cups (460 g) melted liquid coconut butter(this is simply pureed coconut. I highly recommend buying this from the store instead of making your own, as the storebought is much smoother and will result in a more classic buttercream in taste and texture. Homemade can be gritty. I always buy the Dastony brand from Whole Foods. Make sure the only ingredient is coconut. The end frosting result is milder in coconut flavor too.)
    • 1 cup plant milk (I used "lite" coconut milk)
    • 1 cup pure maple syrup
    • 6 tablespoons (96 g) raw cashew butter
    • 8 tablespoons (60 g) vegan powdered sugar (I use Wholesome Sweeteners brand)
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla powder (I use a white powder instead of extract to keep the frosting as white as possible. I LOVE this brand, it has no weird aftertaste, just heavenly)
