Christmas Cake



I am thoroughly enthralled with light blue this Christmas. I made this cake for a party I went to on Saturday night. It was a two layer "Basic Chocolate Cupcake" recipe from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World made into cake instead of cupcakes frosted with a super yummy tofutti sour cream based frosting (below) and decorated with cute little lollipops and crushed blue candy canes.

I also made the "Gingerbread Cupcakes" from VCTOTW. Those puppies are freaking amazing. They are my new favorite cupake. Period.

Sour Creem Frosting
6 oz (half a tub) of Tofutti Better than Sour Cream
1/2 cup (1 stick) Earth Balance
1 tbsp vanilla
Almost 2 pounds of powdered sugar

Cream together margarine ans sour cream until fluffy. Add in vanilla. Add in powdered sugar, one cup at a time and mix until desired consistency, Add a few drops of food coloring if desired. Keep refrigerated unti ready to use.

Yield: Enough to frost this 2 layer cake plus 12 cupcakes!
