Vegan + Gluten Free Vanilla Cake Mix + Vanilla Frosting

The magical foundation of the cakes we make at the bakery now TOTALLY CERTIFIED NUT-FREE! All you need to have in the cupboard is vanilla, oil, agave nectar, and applesauce (preferably unsweetened). The mix makes 12 cupcakes or one single-layer 8-inch cake. Also included is our vanilla frosting which consists of rice milk, coconut milk, agave nectar, coconut oil, and vanilla. It arrives in a liquid state, so you’ll need to refrigerate it for at least 4 hours before taking your frosting spatula to it. A single jar will frost 12 cupcakes or one single-layer 8-inch cake.

Erin McKenna opened her bakery on New York’s Lower East Side back in 2005, and since then additional storefronts have opened in Los Angeles, Santa Monica, and at Disney Springs in Orlando, and the bakery has established itself as one of America’s top destinations for drool-worthy vegan and gluten-free baked goods. Not only are all of McKenna’s cakes, pies, cupcakes, and other sweets completely vegan and gluten-free, they’re also non-GMO, sweetened with only agave nectar and vegan sugar, and all ingredients are responsibly and carefully sourced.

Everything! Pie was delivered when promised. And it was delicious! My daughter was recently diagnosed with celiac disease and my granddaughter is allergic to all dairy.
