LAVENDER CASHEW CAKE_3.jpg

I’ve been making various cake trials lately and came up with this deliciousness; A Raw Lavender Cashew Cake with A Blueberry Glace. It was for a family gathering; my niece's two years old birthday we celebrated this weekend and the cake plate was empty which I consider as a great sign!

I’ve also been working on some other content recently, collecting some of my best sweets recipes and healing tools that I want to share. I have a deep passion for the field of healing and mastering our health and I believe I have gathered some amazing tools and knowledge over the years during my own journey. My aim is to share more about the health aspect of foods and will share my own story soon that I hope will be able to help and inspire others.

This recipe I’m sharing today will make your start of the week even better!! The flavors of the lavender and blackberries goes so well together, and I think it turned out so delicious that I wanted to share with you all.

Bon Appetit!! <3
