Yes, having fun making raw cakes. We had recently had a wonderfully successful event with The Wandering Yak who specialise in vegan/vegetarian street food. I made a selection raw vegan cakes and tarts. I've since made them several times to put in the cake fridge at the Cat. It's amazing and quite satisfying how popular they are. though sadly only as long as they're not labelled vegan or raw! Odd because you'd think in this day and age, people would be much more open to trying different food. And so many people are now embracing the raw food culture. Not sure I could get away with it at the Cat. . . but I am tempted!

Anyway, here are a couple of the popular ones and sorry not pictures. I never think of taking pictures while make cakes. Usually because I'm not thinking about putting them out anywhere. So you can just imagine how they look!

Raw Chocolate and Berry Tart
Base:
1 1/2 cups ground almonds
1 cup chopped dates
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 tblsps cacao
4 tbsps coconut oil

Blend almonds, dates, vanilla and cacao together. Slowly add coconut oil. Press into the base of a 23cm springform tin. Put in the fridge to set. 

Filling:
4 ripe avocados
250g cacao
1/4 cup maple syrup
100g coconut sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch salt
280g coconut oil (melted - I just put the jar on top of the oven while it's on)
1 cup water

Puree the avocados. Add all other ingredients and process until smooth. Pour over the chilled base. Put back in the fridge to set. 

You can decorate it with chopped strawberries, raspberries, blueberries or a mixture of all three.

Brilliant! The one I had from the cafe was really tasty. Any suggestions for where I can get coconut sugar and cacao?

Hi Emmi thank you for your comment. Glad you liked it. You can get both from Holland and Barrett or buy on-line which is where I get it. Happy non-baking.
