2
½ cup whey protein powder or egg white protein powder
3
1 tablespoon baking powder
4
¼ teaspoon salt
5
½ cup butter softened
6
¾ cup granulated Swerve Sweetener
7
3 large eggs room temperature

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

½ cup unflavored nut milk

1 ¼ recipe Buttercream

Sugar free sprinkles

Method

1
Preheat the oven to 180C and grease two 8 inch round metal baking pans well. Line the bottoms with parchment paper and grease the parchment.
2
In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, protein powder, baking powder, and salt.
3
In a large bowl, beat the butter with the sweetener until lightened and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the eggs one at a time until well incorporated, then beat in the vanilla extract.
4
Add the flour mixture in two additions, alternating with the nut milk. Divide the batter among the prepared baking pans and spread to the edges.
5
Bake 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown around the edges and the tops are just firm to the tough.
6
Remove and let cool in the pans 30 minutes, then run a sharp knife around the edges and flip out onto wire racks to cool completely.
7
Prepare the frosting according to the directions. Reserve about ½ to ⅔ cup of the frosting for piping decoratively.
8
Place one layer of cake on a cake stand or plate. Spread the top with one-third of the remaining frosting. Place the second layer on top and spread the top with another third of the frosting. Spread the sides with the final third.
9
Use the reserved frosting to pipe rosettes or stars around the edge of the top of the cake. Sprinkle the top with 1 tablespoon sugar free sprinkles.
10
To add sprinkles to the side of the cake: Set the cake plate on a clean counter. Pour sprinkles into your hand and gently press around the bottom 1 to 2 inches, letting any that don't stick fall onto the counter. Turn the cake as you press more into the bottom
