Vegan MoFo 2009 Day #29: Hallow-vegan Cake

Totally inspired by River's awesome little cakes was I. There are two layers of the Fauxstess Cupcake recipe from Vegan with a Vengeance, layered between that is vegan buttercream. The same buttercream is spread round 3 sides of the cake and then I dragged a fork around the three sides to make the pages. The top and spine of the book is made using Ginger's Chocolate Ganache recipe. I had a little buttercream left over so I chucked this in too. This should keep the ghouls happy this Halloween!! GO VEGAN! GO MoFo!!
