I had a cake coming up for a very special one-year-old (pictures soon) who is allergic to eggs. So I Googled "eggless cake" and tried the first recipe I found. It was pretty highly rated, easy, and most of all, eggless. The best part? It was actually pretty yummy and I'm glad I have this recipe filed away now. It takes a lot of orange juice, so it has a little bit of an orange flavor. I'm assuming the acid and baking soda do all the leavening work.
I made cupcakes to do a trial run and let the momma of the allergic ankle biter try out the cake. So of course my coworkers got to try them. :) I had strawberries left over from the Spiderman cake, so I mixed them into the frosting. It made it super runny and I may still have some in the freezer that is pretty soft even now. Enough extra buttercream added in and here is what I ended up with:
I love the wrappers, but I got them at Ikea and now I need the pans that go with them because they're narrower than normal muffin tins and so they splayed out really bad.
Look at all those lovely bits of strawberry!
