DECORATE WATER CAKE NO EGGS NO MILK

We like to keep decorating fresh and light with this cake. A schmear of whipped cream topped with strawberries and blueberries is absolutely delicious.

Or how about a simple dusting of powdered sugar? This makes a nice finishing touch for the cake.

While some may like their cake to be simple and light, some others might prefer a frosted finished cake. Feel free to either decorate the entire cake or each slice individually.

HOW TO STORE THE CAKE

Keep the cake in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.

NUT-FREE FLOUR

1. If wheat agrees with you, I recommend King Arthur all-purpose flour packaged in a paper bag, as they are milled in dedicated wheat-only facilities. If you are allergic, double check on King Arthur’s website as manufacturing practices may change.
