1 bag of mix No. 2

Fresh strawberries, sliced

Whipped Cream:

2 14-oz can full-fat coconut milk, refrigerated for 24 hours

2-4 tablespoons powdered sugar, to taste

Pinch of salt, to taste

Place can of coconut milk in refrigerator at least 24 hours before assembling cake. Preheat oven to 350°F. 

Lightly oil two cake pans, line with parchment and oil again.

Pour dry mix into a large bowl and set aside.

In a high-power blender combine water, olive oil, vinegar and sweet potato.

Blend until smooth. Add blended liquid to the bowl of dry mix and stir until

Cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then turn onto a cooling rack.

Wait for cakes to fully cool before assembling.

To make the whipped cream, carefully remove the cold coconut fat from the top of the cans, leaving the water at the bottom of the can. In a stand mixer, or with a hand mixer, whip the coconut cream for 2-4 minutes on medium speed until the cream becomes fluffy. Add the powdered sugar and salt and whip until combined.

When the cakes are fully cool, transfer one to a large plate or cake stand. Using a spatula, spread one third of the whipped cream over the first cake. Add a layer of strawberry slices on top of the whipped cream. Flip the second cake upside down and spread half of the remaining whipped cream over the bottom of the cake, then flip on top of the strawberry layer, so that the strawberry slices are sandwiched between two layers of whipped cream. Spread the rest of the whipped cream on top of the cake and cover with strawberry slices.
