Vegan Chocolate Mousse Cake in the Sun

vegan chocolate mousse cake

Eat this vegan chocolate mousse cake in the sun, or in the rain, or in the snow. It’s good for all weathers 🙂

Vegan Chocolate Mousse Cake Method

  • Choose a cake recipe. Chocolate is good; vanilla would be nice too.
  • Bake cake in two 9″ sandwich tins and cool.
  • Prepare the mousse by blending a box of silken tofu with a heaped tablespoon of icing sugar, a tablespoon of  cocoa powder (also heaped) and a tablespoon of coconut oil which won’t heap in this heat so two splodgy spoonfuls will do 🙂 The coconut oil goes in at the last minute of blending; you will see the mixture thicken and it’s this ingredient that makes the mousse light and slightly fluffy.
  • Put some between the cakes and pile the rest on top.

Eat in the sun, or in the shade, in bed or in the bath, it matters not, just eat…

Cake Assembly

Cut the corner off one end of the cake and turn it round to look like a branch (excuse rough drawing!) – arrange on the cake board or plate.
Secure the branch with some of the icing.

With a knife smooth off the corners of the log to make it rounded.
Cover the entire cake with the rest of the icing, then use a fork to make lines and knots like a log 🙂
Dust with icing sugar.
Decorate to your hearts content.

Little Chocolate logs

Ingredients

mini Yule logs for Vegan Christmas
  • 1 chocolate cake prepared in a large square tin so it will not be too deep ( visit the chocolate page if you need a recipe for this)
  • vegan marzipan
  • A bar of dark vegan chocolate
  • icing sugar for dusting
  • glace cherries and crystallised angelica for decoration or children might prefer D&D chocolate beans or other sweets – in the picture weve used pecan nuts

Cut the cake into small rectangles ( 10 cm. X 4 cm. and 2 or 3 cm. deep). Cut thin pieces of marzipan and place on top of the cakes. Pour melted chocolate over the top of each log, decorate to your hearts content and then dust with the icing sugar (snow!).
