Vegan Yellow Cake

This is a very dense, moist pale yellow cake. The taste is most delicious so be prepared for raves and requests for the recipe. Perfect for fruit fillings, non-dairy custards, mousses, or combinations of fillings. We enjoy using a raspberry filling, and frosting the cake with vegan buttercream (simply eliminate the meringue powder from our Winter White Buttercream recipe.
