Frickin’ Easy Vegan Black Forest Cake

By popular demand, I tried to make a vegan version of my black forest cake.  It sort of worked?! I guess.  It tasted great but the coconut whipped cream didn’t last long.  My original cake was made with whipping cream and it was perfect. It was a moist and delicious cake. This version was just…
