A cloud hung over my mom's birthday this year. Her two daughters had gone vegan and one was gluten-free as well.
Am I even going to have a birthday cake this year? She cried over the phone.
Yes, don't worry, I tried to sound reassuring, but where in the world was I going to get a vegan, gluten-free birthday cake recipe that would actually taste good?!
Why, the internets of course. Where everything is true and the world is at your fingertips.
I found some great mimic recipes for momofuku's cakes and treats and tweaked them further into this awesome, totally over-the-top birthday cake. Would you believe it was gone in two days? 'Cause actually it was a day and a half.
