I am baking a cake for vegan friends. Obviously no egg, no MMF because of the marshmallow, no white chocolate... So my question is, does anybody have great vegan cake recipe that tastes good? Also does anybody know if Satin Ice fondant pass for vegan? Thanks in advance for any advice! <3

Satin Ice is acceptable to most vegans, although the packaging does not label it as vegan. I can list the ingredients if you want.

I've never substituted for eggs, so I can't help you with a recipe.

Good luck,
Kathi

why no MMF because of the marshmallow?

Do you have access to kosher marshmallows? They are vegan. Paskeez is the best tasting brand if you have options (IMHO).

Thanks! I was just lurking on a vegan forum and they were talking about vegan fondants. Satin Ice is! Woot! They said Wilton is as well, just yucky tasting and I agree with that. Marshmallow has gelatin in it that's why not acceptable. I will use satin. Now I just need a recipe for cake. I found those too, but I wish somebody here would say oooh this one is yummeee! icon_smile.gif Oh and a butter cream...perhaps?

Check the label for kosher marshmallows. Some have veggie gelatin, but some have fish gelatin.

You also want to make sure you get vegan powder sugar. There is something in the process of making powder sugar that doesn't meet with their beliefs.

make sure the flour and the sugars you use have not been bromated. meaning no granulated sugar and no white lbeached flour. theyve both been treated with animal bones thus making them not vegan. I am vegan and i work at a vegan bakery. let me know if you have any other questions.
