Bunner's Bake Shop CookbookThis cake is at the epicentre of Bunner’s birthday-ness. It basically spells “Happy Birthday” in rainbow frosting. Every year, Kevin and I celebrate our birthdays a mere four days apart, and every year we make a giant vanilla cake with chocolate frosting to thank our amazing customers. This people-pleaser is the only cake you’ll need on your birthday, not just because everyone will love it but because the most important person at the party will you!

  • Yield: 1 (9-inch) double-layer cake


How to Make It
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Spray two 9-inch cake pans with canola oil.
  2. In a large bowl, sift both flours and starches with the baking powder, salt, baking soda, and xanthan gum. Whisk well to combine.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the agave nectar, oil, applesauce, milk, and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix together.
  4. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cake pans. Bake for 30 minutes or until a knife or toothpick inserted into the centre of a cake comes out clean.
  5. Let the cakes cool to room temperature, then wrap them, still in the pans, in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, and up to overnight.
  6. When you’re ready to frost the cake, remove from the pans and place the bottom layer on a serving plate. Spread with one-third of the chocolate buttercream frosting. Place the second layer on top and cover the entire cake with the remaining frosting.
