Easy Banana Pudding Layer Cake
Hands up if your gluten free cake has broken on you while trying to do something with it 🙌😭
PRO TIP: broken gluten free cake makes the best deconstructed cakes! It absorbs the fillings much better than a sturdy cake, and it looks super fancy in a mason jar.
We like to call it deconstructed cake (it's a bit more vogue, don't you think). Deconstructed cake was born into our existence after a random catastrophe in our production kitchen where this huge sheet of layer cake just snapped in half as we tried to remove it from the pan. As we hate food waste, we threw the broken cake into the freezer until something inspired us to use it.
It then hit me: mini trifle! It's the perfect way to use broken cake, especially if you layer it with awesome fillings!
In this recipe, we layer of banana cake made from Dolled Up Desserts Lady Banane muffin mix, our vegan buttercream (recipe is right here) and simple vegan banana pudding... for someone that's not a banana fan, this layer cake is INCREDIBLY FLAVOURFUL! And requires no skill.... so why aren't you baking yet?
As always, this cake is entirely gluten free and vegan as well as nut free (but you can also add walnuts to the layers, that would be LOVELY!). Remember to pick up the cake mix in our shop, as well as your icing essentials (soy isolate protein anyone!)
