Flowers are the latest craze among bakers, because they are simply adorable. So many people have the skills to actually make flowers that look like the real thing, but a lot also use natural blooms. The base of the cake is simple, but with the details it becomes the coolest one ever.

Fancy a delish, plant-based & gluten-free Mother’s Day Cake? Well, here’s your recipe! Created this special treat in collab with Risenta @risentasuomi and their lovely almond meal which is my fave flour when baking because it just makes everything suuuper tasty. For the decoration you’ll get a fun twist when you cut off a cake slice before frosting and fill also the notch with plant-based whipped cream and berries. 👌🏽 Hope you’ll try it & like it! (Resepti suomeksi kommenteissa!) Have a sweet weekend! #vanelja #collab #risenta ✨ Vanelja’s Mother’s Day Cake (vegan, gluten-free) ✨ Cake: ½ cup oat milk 4 tbsp ground flax seeds 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted ⅔ cup applesauce, unsweetened 1 tsp apple cider vinegar 1 tsp vanilla extract 1 cup almond meal by Risenta ⅔ cup oat flour (or grind rolled oats in the blender) ½ cup coconut sugar 2 tsp baking powder tiny pinch sea salt ✨ Filling & on top: Coconut whipped cream or soy whip fresh berries banana almond flakes ✨ Tin diameter: 16-18 cm / 6,5 – 7 inches ✨ Preheat the oven to 180 C / 350 F degrees. Mix the oat milk and ground flax in a small bowl and leave to thicken for 10 mins. In the meantime measure the coconut oil, applesauce, apple cider vinegar and vanilla in a big bowl and stir well. Mix the almond meal, oat flour, coconut sugar, baking powder and salt in another bowl and mix then with the wet ingredients. Stir in also the flax gel. Grease a cake tin with coconut oil and pour in the cake dough. Bake for about 40-45 mins, until a toothpick comes out clean. Note that the texture of the cake should be a bit moist. Take the cake out of the oven and let cool completely. Split the cake in two with a sharp knife. Fill with coconut whipped cream or soy whip and banana slices. Set the other half on top of the lower half and frost the cake with coconut whipped cream or soy whip and place lots of fresh berries on top. Finalize with edible flowers.

Classic Layers

You don’t have to do too many layers when making your cake. If you are a lover of cheesecakes, make one in several different colors. Make sure to decorate it, so it gets that unique final touch.
