National Cake Day! 5 of our Favorites

Happy National Cake Day!

It turns out your birthday isn’t the only holiday celebrate with cake. There’s a day just for our centuries long admiration of these sweet and diversely magical treats. Cakes are something known the world over, and have seen incredible works of art, ingenuity, and yes, science “baked” into their rich history.

Thankfully, vegan baking is easy as ever! And without eggs or dairy, it’s a whole lot safer to try some batter before you bake it. To celebrate National (Vegan) Cake Day, we’re sharing 5 of our favorite recipes from around the web!
