RALPH! (Or as some might call it, vegan chocolate birthday cake!)

This is Ralph! The vegan chocolate cake I made for my sisters birthday. (Happy 23rd Abbie!!)

We may have personified him a little too much :S Felt a bit guilty while eating him... Had to mop up our tears with more bits of Ralph.

Yup... not my own. I didn't use their glaze recipe though, I just mixed icing sugar, cocoa, vanilla and vegan marg for that :) Also, I added soy milk instead of water in the cake, and more cider vinegar.

Ralph was decorated with dairy free chocolate buttons from Tesco.

Ralph was a special child... Named after a certain Simpsons character :) 

This is Ralph when he came out the oven.

I assembled Ralph by cutting off two bottom corners of the cake, cutting them in half and sandwiching them together to make the ears. I secured them with toothpicks.

More pics of Ralph :) 

My beautiful sister Abbie, lighting the ceremonial torches before sacrificing Ralph to our bellies.

No birthdays coming up?

Make it anyway...
