As promised (if you have been following me on Facebook or Twitter), here are a few photos I took for the Vegan Bake Sale we had here in Dublin last Saturday (28th April 2012).
I donated a Pineapple Upside Down Cake with Coconut. I took a few shots while I was making it. But I haven't had the chance to write down the recipe yet. So, just some photos for now.
I like to use fresh pineapple instead of canned ones because the taste is so much nicer! I corked out the centre with a small knife.
Then, I greased the bottom of the pans and laid the pineapple rings. I sprinkled with a little soft dark brown sugar.
Poured in the batter.
All baked! Out of the oven!
I used fresh coconut that I grated and lightly toasted in the oven.
I iced the cake with vegan buttercream frosting and the toasted coconut.
At this stage I was dying to have a slice for myself!
I packed it in a box with the lid at the bottom...
Now some photos of the bake sale. (Sorry about the poor quality of these ones, it was a cloudy day and not much light was entering the hall. I thought they would be better shared despite this.) It was a great day! The cakes went away quickly and it seems everyone had a good time.
Here are some baked goods from others who donated:
I got myself a few yummy treats:
And I got a shot of the inside of the Pineapple Upside Down cake:
So, that is all for now.
