My son has a buddy from school, who is a HUGE Captain America fan. He always has a Captain America shirt on, has Captain America toys, dressed as Captain America for Halloween last year, and even wore the same costume again this year for my son’s birthday party. It did not matter to him that the costume was a little high on the ankles…all it meant was that ‘Captain Cohen’ had a growth spurt. :)
So when his mother requested a Captain America cake from me, I was more than happy to oblige. He has a dairy allergy, so I opted for a Vegan Vanilla Cake recipe I always turn to for him, which is definitely one of my favorite cake recipes overall, due to its extreme moistness and texture. It really IS a yummy cake, and to make it a little extra special for him, I added a fresh strawberry swirl into the cake batter. I hope he and his wonderful family enjoyed it….I definitely enjoyed making it!
On the menu for this Sugar Shindig: a Vegan Vanilla Cake with a fresh strawberry puree swirl, covered in Vanilla Buttercream and Marshmallow Fondant. Next week I get to make cake pops and cupcakes for the same little guy (for the kid’s party), and they’ll follow the same Captain America theme. I’ll have to do some brain storming about how to decorate them, so I can come up with something truly special and memorable. Stay tuned and stay sweet!
