Orange Scented Vanilla Custard Cake

Orange Scented Vanilla Custard Cake

Orange Scented Vanilla Custard Cake

Another Egg Free ~ Dairy Free vegan cake to add to your Best Cakes file!

I am in love with this recipe for orange scented vanilla custard cake!

The sponge cake is so light with a tender crumb, scented with orange zest, a splash of juice and laced with Orange Blossom Water

The custard is made with a classic cooked custard base added to a silky tofu, vanilla bean and maple mixture that when it sets resembles a smooth custard perfect for the filling in this cake!

It is a pretty intense building on recipes project, but what amazing layer cake creation is not intense?? Greatness was never meant to be easy!

The buttercream icing can be your choice of Swiss Aquafaba Buttercream or an American style Vegan Buttercream

I added a splash of more orange blossom water to it at the end

Decorated with candles and confetti to celebrate my 100,000 subscribers on youtube! Woohoo!!

Gimme dat Silver Play Button Youtube!

Happy Milestone Day to ME! Thanks everyone! Without you guys I would be nothing! 🙂

Much love <3
