Cakes, cakes, cakes, cakes, cakes

My flat has felt like a bakery this weekend! A friend asked me if I could make a large cake for his birthday party tomorrow. I'm always a bit nervous with making large cakes but I'm pleased with how it's come out. I started with the basic chocolate cake batter from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World, doubled this and added chocolate chips and dried cherries. There's a vanilla chocolate frosting, white + dark chocolate buttons and lots of little stars and edible holographic glitter. So, it's a triple chocolate cherry cake!

Tomorrow is also the Manchester Vegan Society, World Vegan Month celebration. It's an afternoon event at the Seven Oaks pub and for a fiver you get Lancashire Hot Pot and a cake. My friend Lynnmarie who has organised the event was going to be making the cakes but has broken her wrist :( So, I've been busy making cupcakes and the cupcake hotel is now loaded up with a choctastic trio of peanut butter with chocolate ganache, chocolate chip and cherry and Mexican Hot Chocolate. Has anyone else got World Vegan month events going on?
