Birthday Veganigans

Ben turned seven the day before yesterday. Here is his celebratory breakfast PB&J.

Here he is in the jumping castle we rented. That's cousin Kelly in the background.

And this is the double layer Bakugan cake with one chocolate layer and one golden layer, along with a chocolate "buttercream" frosting center and plain "buttercream" outer layer. All made (or adapted) from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. This was the first time I made frosting since I've had access to Earth Balance shortening. So good. Lighter, fluffier, my sister said she could really taste the unicorn.
The chocolate cake layer fell apart when I tried to move it to the cake carrier, but the frosting held everything together. It was delicious, but no inside pics because it wasn't very pretty.
