We loved this cake. Very moist. I added a bit of cinnamon since I did not have The orange peel. I did have to bake it 10 minutes longer which did not create any problem. . Guests enjoyed it and asked that I make this cake again which I certainly will. Thanks for sharing this wonderful gluten free cake

I don't understand why you would say "vegan" frosting when vegans would eat the cake.

I was really excited about this recipe when I saw it, but I wasn't very impressed with the turn out. I found the cake to be quite bland. It was also hard to bake – slowly burning on the outside while remaining uncooked on the inside. I could also taste the sea salt in the cake. The vegan frosting was very nice and I had never cooked with coconut flour before, which I use in future baking.
