Remove it from oven and let it cool for 20 mins.

Now invert the cake from the pan and let it cool completely before icing.

Now decorate the cake using vanilla butter cream frosting and serve.

Take all your ingredients and i forgot to keep vanilla

in a sifter, take flour

add in baking powder


sift it and set aside

Now in a bowl. take sugar

add in oil

and some water

mix well and set aside

in a bowl, take curd

add in vinegar

and baking soda

immediately it start to bubble up,

it started to foam a lot, so transfered it to a bigger bowl

add the sugar mix in

along with a good splash of vanilla

add in flour mix

fold gently 

divide the batter between two cake pans

bake it

remove the cake from the pan

use a knife and cut the top off

so you get a flat top

place the cake over the board

cut strips of parchment paper

place it all around the sides

Now i took some vanilla butter cream and
dolloped some over the cake

spread it with a knife

spread it evenly

Now place the other cake on top too

spoon some more frosting

keep spreading

use the knife to go around the sides

the top need not be perfect

but make sure the sides are smooth..
you can dip the knife in
some hot water and go around the sides

Now i took the remaining frosting

i added some pink colour

mix that well

i used this tip

spooned the frosting into a piping bag

and make small piping

just like this

first i went all around the sides

then inside the cake

i filled the gaps with some dots

now all completely coloured

now lets remove the strips

you have a clean board now

i made designs like this

all around the cake, it creates a nice border

all done

now for a finishing touch, i took some sprinkles

sprinkled it all over the cake

  5. Hi Aarthi... cake looks beautiful and yummylicious.. I have a question. How to store this cake. If it is refrigerated will it gets harden ?

  6. @Rekha Rathish No need freezing, they stay good for couple of day in room temp

  7. @Prescilla When refrigerated it gets a little hard. You can store this for a couple of days at room temp

  8. Aarthi, is there is alternative for vinegar or we can use apple cider vinegar or oil.

  9. I love vegan cake.

    But from the past few days baking has become a disaster.

    When I bake the cake, I normally preheat the oven at 180 degree Celsius for 4 to 5 mins. Then when I keep the cake , if I continue keeping at 180, the cake burns😣

    and if I bring it down to 155 or 160 degree Celsius not sure how ,but the cake kind of becomes hard and gets over baked at the top and remains little unbaked inside.

    Please help me on how do I adjust this to ensure that the cake becomes soft,get baked correctly and doesn't burn.

  10. @AnonymousI am not sure, may be it is because of your oven
