- For a chocolate cake, use a dark soda, like Coke or Pepsi. For a yellow cake or spice cake, use a light soda like Sprite or 7UP.
- In our experience, this cake tends to be a little bit softer and crumblier than other vegan cake recipes. It's not a problem, but it does mean that this cake should not be used for a multilayered cake. It's best as a single layer or a sheet cake.
- Similarly, be very gentle when frosting this cake, as it is a bit delicate. Use a liquid glaze that you can pour or drizzle over the top (rather than spread), or just omit the frosting altogether and sprinkle confectioners' sugar on top of your vegan cake.
- When it comes to looking for a vegan cake mix to use, Duncan Hines is your friend. You should always read the label to be sure, as companies often change their recipes or have different regional varieties, but many Duncan Hines cake mixes are vegan, including the Devil's Food cake mix and Classic Yellow cake mix.
- Duncan Hines White Cake, Dark Chocolate Fudge, and Spice Cake are usually vegan, and each would work well in this recipe.
