Make Up Post

I haven't posted in a while, but I'll try to catch up now.

In May, I made this cake for my oldest daughter's birthday. Vegan chocolate with a peanut butter buttercream. My daughter loved it!
The cake and the frosting were so good, I made this flavor combo into cupcake for a friend's bridal shower.
Here's a Plum-Strawberry Crisp I made for a dinner party. The recipe's from Veganomicon. I sub'ed the sugar with maple sugar and baked in the individual cups to make it more special. The anise seeds in the crumble are genius and delicious.
Lately I haven't been baking as much. I've been really concentrating on preparing more raw recipes. Here are my early exeriments.

This is an Almond-Coconut-Date Shake made with the milk and meat of a young coconut, dates and raw almond butter. On the top is a mix I bought premade over at Juliano's. It's made with dried goji berries, raw cacoa nibs, coconut shavings and raw nuts. Fantastic!This is a Raw Thai Coconut Soup. I serve it slightly warmed and it is delicious!
