About this Bake

A gluten-free, egg-free chocolate cake, covered with chocolate and vanilla buttercream.

Top tip

This cake was a steep learning curve for me – needed to add extra scaffolding at the crumb coat stage. Proves the value of a crumb coat followed by a spell in the fridge! And allow plenty of time – baking, construction and decoration took a couple of days, but I really enjoyed it!
