this cake was absolutely amazing !! after i made my Raw Banana Cream Pie i had my sister taste test it, which sparked an interest in her & she decided to get to work in the kitchen & one-up me. & i hate to admit total defeat, she totally takes the cake-literally, for her yummy Raw Vegan Red Velvet Inspired Cake !
isn’t it seriously so amazingly adorable ?! ahhh !
ellie really outdid herself on this one ; )
i snapped this pic before devouring my slice ! notice my vday inspired polish- had to.
the best part of this cake ?! THE INGREDIENTS ! the number one ingredient used to make this cake is- beets ! yes, beets ?! while i personally don’t love the taste of them- i couldn’t even taste them !

In The Kitchen With:

Location: Boca Raton
Interests: spending time with friends and family, sailing, anything

occasional scarf & using Google as my trusted sous chef.
Typical fitness regimen: playing college soccer, newly retired I now
utilize youtube.com and follow workout videos that I can do in my room
no equipment/props necessary, I recommend the Victoria’s Secret Sport
Series ! Or I head to the rec center for light cardio & free weights.
Typical AM ritual: plain oatmeal with water & scoop of chia seeds !
(**bonus ! heat the water first then add the oatmeal, add more water if
necessary—I prefer a soupy consistency because it fills me up ! )

Example of an “experiment”: I wanted to make something for
