RAW ORANGE CHOCOLATE CAKE


 

Velvet cashew orange cream toped with dark chocolate layer, altogether “settle” on scent almonds – carob base, is my vision of heaven.

Light in texture but in the same time incredible reach in taste, loaded with nutrients.

This divine, imaginative comb of flavors for the first time I tried on birthday party of my friend Katarina. I immediately fell in love with that cake. Katarina is guru for vegan cuisine and she gave me this recipe from her large collection of raw food recipes.
