Baking Tips For Vegan Cake 

  • Beat the sugar and vegan butter with the ingredients at room temperature. This will ensure the sugar is properly dispersed and that the butter isn’t chunky. 
  • Use springform pans to enable easier cake removal. Make sure the cake is cold before you remove it and frost it. 
  • Sift the flour and sugar to ensure your vegan 4th of july red white and blue dessert recipe has no clumps and it is more light and fluffy.
