Think you can't have a fancy vegan birthday cake? Think again. If you have the time to create a non-vegan one, it will take no longer to do a vegan one.
My daughter LOVES hello kitty, and was thrilled to have that theme for her party. Since purple and pink are her favorite colors (in that order), the castle cake's primary colors were chosen for me.
The cake is covered with fondant. Vegan fondant does exist, and is readily available. The kind which I prefer is Satin Ice. I like that it says directly on their web page "Fondant contains no animal derived ingredients." I've also heard the Wilton version is vegan as well, but that it doesn't taste as good.
If you are still coming up short, I found a recipe over at "Live.Learn.Love.Eat" for vegan marshmallow fondant which sounds delicious. I can't wait to try it!
