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...
