Now, those who know me might say, “Rachel, we thought you didn’t do this sort of thing.”Well, when Noah and Elle’s mom, Robin, called me and asked if I would be willing to make birthday cakes for her family, and explained that Noah had special dietary needs, I said yes! I can’t refuse a child who needs a birthday cake!Both of the cakes are made dairy and egg free.

Noah’s cake was vanilla with a vanilla icing and Elle’s was chocolate with my vegan tofu chocolate pudding on the inside. Even though I am lucky enough to eat dairy and eggs, I found I could not resist the trimmings when I carved out Elmo’s head.

The accents are in fondant but the rest is all “butter”cream.

Thank you Robin, Noah and Elle for giving me an opportunity to stretch outside the box I usually bake in!
