Can you make these vegan cakes Top 8 Allergen Free?
Most of the cakes can be made Top 8 Allergen Free. Since they are already free of dairy and eggs, the other concern is soy. Usually soy is in vegan butter or maybe vegan chocolate.
However, there is a lot of vegan chocolate that is already soy free and as far as the vegan butter, we always recommend using Soy Free Earth Balance, it comes in a red tub.
The only other exception is a cake like our vegan coconut cake, that obviously has coconut and we wouldn’t recommend changes there.
Every post has instructions to make Top 8 Allergen Free.
Can I make cupcakes instead of cake?
Yes! Some of the recipes are already cupcake recipes. But whether it’s a cake or cupcake recipe you can always just increase or decrease the amount of batter to make one or the other.
Most of our cake recipes are 3 layers, so you could just do half or a 1/3 of the ingredients to make a smaller amount of cupcakes (or just make them all).
And vice versa, if it’s a cupcake recipe, you can increase the amount to make more layers.
