I volunteered to bake a chocolate ganache cake for a friend's birthday tea on Sunday - but I just found out she and a couple people are vegan (these are very recent developments). Cue slight anxiety because I have very little idea of what that entails...and though much of my experience with vegan baked goods has been less than stellar, I also know it can be done!

So do any of you have good relatively easy vegan chocolate cake recipes? I was originally thinking a dark chocolate layer cake with maybe some sort of mousse (would coconut cream work for that) to go in the middle and a chocolate ganache outside but...I don't have vegan versions of those recipes and I hesitate to do too much experimenting on her birthday cake...

ETA: THANK YOU SO MUCH. I'M EXCITED AGAIN. HAVE SOME (probably not-vegan) CAKE GIFS!
