Plants Vs Zombies Eggless Chocolate Cake

Plants Vs Zombies Eggless Chocolate Cake

For my son’s birthday school cake he requested an eggless cake, as there is a fellow class mate who doesn’t eat eggs, so for the first time I tried to make a large eggless cake, enough to feed the whole class.

My little boy ( ok maybe not so little anymore) as he is now 11, wanted a Plants Vs Zombies cake. That’s when I scratched my head and thought ‘huh?! Plants vs what?’, after a little googling, I released this is a video game! I thought I was pretty good with all the technology stuff however I was so wrong!

School cake you saw me say, why yes a cake for school. I’ve done this since the kids started school, instead of the normal sweets taken into school they instead take in a cake or cupcakes into school and share with their fellow classmates and year group.

This will be the last year for my little lad, as next year he will be at secondary school and some how I can’t imagine he will take in a mummy made cake! This does make me very sad, as now it will just be the one cake. In earlier years I’ve made 3 cakes with one for school, one for the actual day and then the party cake! Those days are long gone and generally been 2 cakes, and then their will be just the one 🙁Plants Vs Zombies Cake

The eggless cake worked wonders, as apparently the kids in the classed loved, and even had a few requests from the kids to see if I will make them cake 🙂
