  7. Pour in 2 - 8” greased pans, or put all the batter in one greased pan (and then cut in half into two cakes later), and bake for 30 minutes at 350F until a toothpick comes out clean- let cool 

Make the saffron buttercream: 

  1. Steep the saffron threads in  warm milk and set aside 
  2. Whip vegan butter until fluffy, then slowly add sugar bit by bit and whip until fluffy and in a frosting texture 
  3. Add saffron milk and whip one last time - then ice your cake
