Silken Vanilla Cake

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

Yummm! I’m loving these Nasoya Silken Creations! They’re awesome to bake with! 😀

With the addition of vanilla-flavored Silken Creations, I only needed to add 4 other ingredients to my recipe to create a wonderful baked good. Love that! :mrgreen:

Approximately 140 calories per piece.

My Silken Vanilla Cake turned out so incredibly soft, fluffy, and vanilla-y. It reminded me a lot of Duncan Hines yellow cake, but, of course, dairy-free, lactose-free, low-fat, and vegan. 😉 All this cake really needed was a thick layer of chocolate frosting. It’s all about balance, right?!?

I honestly cannot wait to make this cake for someone’s birthday! I have a feeling it will be a real crowd-pleaser! :mrgreen:

Spring it!



  1. Um, was this an advertisement for Nasoya Silken Creations or what? They sound awesome but I didn’t expect the Wayne’s Worldesque product placement….

  2. That sounds so good! I’ll have to look for them. I haven’t seen them in the store. These would be great for my smoothies. I used to make my smoothies with milk and yogurt, but I can’t have dairy anymore.

  3. I’ve been seeing these in stores but wasn’t sure what else you could make with them. Thanks so much for posting a recipe. It looks delicious!

  4. looks delicious! I just got some coupons for the nayosa silken creations and was planning on buying them – do you know of any single serve recipes i could try?? thanks girl :)!

  5. I just spotted these at the store but I didn’t get them because I wasn’t really sure how I would use it. Well, after seeing this cake, I have my answer!!! VEGAN DESSERTS of course! 🙂

    And, it sounds like such an awesome addition in oats. Thanks for posting about this product, I can’t wait to try it.

    Good luck with the house hunting.

  6. I think if the recipe turned out awful, Tina would have said so. She’s giving a positive review because she liked the product. Same with Barney Butter. Usually, when a product sucks, the blogger doesn’t hesitate to (tastefully) say as much.

    I appreciate the vegan dessert posts!

  7. @NV2:I get this, and I agree. But when Tina DOES like a product, I think she goes way overboard with the product placement and review…it sounds like she’s being paid to gush about it. Especially Barney Butter, and when we get a whole post devoted to just one product. It sounds fake to me, therefore making it seem like an ad even if it’s not.

  8. @Susan: I WISH I was getting paid to promote these products! But, I’m not. And, if I don’t like I product, I say so. I’m ALWAYS honest. I have nothing to lose! I just happen to REALLY like Barney Butter, and the Silken Creations surprised me– they’re really delicious and wonderful in baked goods! 🙂

  9. What Tina does is *review* products from time to time. “Product placement” would be a form of *paid* advertising where a brand is strategically placed in context for the viewer to consciously or subconsciously view.

    “Product placement, or embedded marketing, is a form of advertisement, where branded goods or services are placed in a context usually devoid of ads, such as movies, the story line of television shows, or news programs. The product placement is often not disclosed at the time that the good or service is featured.”

    Personally, I find Tina genuine and real. I don’t think she compromises her integrity by giving an “over favorable” review of products she enjoys or baked goodies she has created for goodness sake. Boy, wouldn’t this world be boring without enthusiasm, passion and joy.

  10. Doh! I saw those Silken creations in the store today but decided against buying them. They’ll be added to the cart next time, for sure!

  11. Another great looking baked good!! Thank god you’re not my roommate, I would NOT be able to control myself 🙂

  12. These just look delicious–I can only imagine how they taste. I haven’t heard of this product before so I really appreciate the review. It seems so versatile. Thanks, Tina 🙂

  13. Where would I find this item in the grocery store? I’m definately interested in trying it out. Do you know the nutritional info for the cake? I bet it would be great with strawberries and whipped cream.

  14. Too many people on here complain about about “your advertising”- I think its great to hear (well, read) your opinion of products. Ex… I would never have thought to try this product but now I might! If they don’t want to read it they don’t have to. I appreciate your honesty, though! Great job, Tina!

  15. Tina, keep up the great work! Your product reviews are informative and you never seem afraid to be honest in them.

    On a different note, do you know how many calories are in the cake you made? Thanks!

  16. Hey guys. Im a twelve year old vegan and I just had to try this recipe. It was the best vegan cake I’d ever had. My family are all meat-eaters, so I cooked this by myself (i wont let them touch my food) and even with my terrible cooking skills, it came out delicious.
