Two Cakes

I love pumpkin…or as is most often the case Butternut Squash (we only get pumpkin available at Halloween in the UK, I’m sure supermarkets don’t realise that people *shock, horror* actually eat pumpkins, obviously believing their only use is for carving into Halloween lanterns)….BUT, pumpkin and/or butternut squash I love greatly, awesome as it is in both sweet and savoury dishes.

To which end I made the Pecan Crumb Pumpkin Cake from V’Con…and added in some Chocolate Chips as I just *happened* to have a bag already open that needed using;-)

I also at long last got around to making a Cookies N’ Cream Cake….only made possible to the sheer generosity of JamboxRocks (Vegan HomeMade) who sent me some Newman O cookies.  Now we do get Oreo cookies over here in the UK but they aren’t vegan because they have whey in them….quite why the UK version needs whey when they US version doesn’t is a mystery to me, but hey-ho I made Cookies N’Cream Cake (and also some Cookies N’Cream Icecream) and it made me very happy.



  1. those are looking seriously good!

  2. Ooh I was just eying that crumb cake recipe today as I flipped through Vcon and was thinking I should make it. Now it’s a definite – looks amazing! Glad you got to have some whey-free sandwich cookies, too. 😉

  6. that is strange that they don’t use the same recipe for oreos. though they do that for lots of products. I’m so geared towards newman-o’s, that oreos taste strange to me now.

    your cakes look so good! YUM!
