Before you run screaming the other way, trust me when I say that this cake is absolutely incredible. Don’t let the word “vegan” put you off… this cake is every bit as decadent as its fat-and-calorie-filled cousins. I’ve sampled my fair share of vegan cakes, and this is by far one of the best!
Note: if you use water-packed tofu for the filling/frosting, the tofu needs to strain for 24 hours. If you use the aseptic tofu, the filling may need to chill for 1-6 hours before being usable, so make the filling/frosting the day before baking the cake. I personally prefer the aseptic tofu to the water-packed tofu; it has a better texture and less bean flavor.
