Recipes

You know you’ve become a pain in the *** when you insist on making your own birthday cake because nothing else will live up to you expectations 😜 just kidding! I really wanted a vegan birthday cake – and those are pretty hard to come by here so I knew I’d just have to create the cake of my dreams for myself. Self love and all you know πŸ˜‰

I’m sure some of you know that I am a total heliophiliac so it had to be a combination of rich dark chocolate and beach vibes (coconut heaven) – thus the bounty cake with a nutty crunchy base and two creamy soft layers.

I made this two days before my birthday and enjoyed a couple of glasses of prosecco whilst making it but despite being a little tipsy it turned out fine πŸ™‚ definitely something to try in the kitchen you guys πŸ˜œπŸ’‹ enjoy this! Xx

    It sounds delicious! Do you use coconut milk from a can (thick one) or coconut milk from a box (watery)? Also, can I replace the tablespoon of cashews butter ( the top layer) with coconut oil or sth else?
