After the big gay cake fail from a few days ago, Smackers really needed cheering up. He wanted cake and was a little bummed that he couldn't eat a rainbow of jello. So, I decided to make a mini gay cake just so I could say that I didn't give up. I cranked up the oven, pulled out my ingredients, and Smackers donned his favorite gay apron so we could get to makin' cakes.
I used a recipe from The 100 Best Vegan Baking Recipes. It was the miniature yellow cake recipe in the section dedicated to children and Easy Bake Oven recipes (the best thing EVER). I flavored it like lemon, doubled the recipe for each layer, and made a very simple tfrosting. Even though the frosting was easy, it was seriously temperamental. Too melty at room temp, too stiff when refrigerated.
Here is Smackers trying to serve himself before I even took pictures. He always forgets that pictures are necessary when making gay cakes.

Trying to pry the cake away from him was a little hard because he had forgotten to eat breakfast before we started baking.

When I finally convinced Smackers to sit still for pictures, I was stoked. He wants everybody to know that he did the frosting, which is why it's a little wonky.

I think my favorite part was definitely coloring the cake. I used coloring gel and divided each layer into three. Then I just did ROY G. BV because 6 colors was easier than 7. There was a little swirl action on top, and the cakes looked really cool unfrosted. Here's a closer picture of the inside.

Smackers and I gave this cake two snaps, a twist, and a kiss. I was really glad I finally made a gay cake! I'm certain I will attempt the jello thing again in the future, probably on a smaller scale. I can't wait to see all the entries for Louzilla's contest! Excited!
Hope everybody has a fabulous weekend!
