Hello people! Today is a special day for me. It’s my birthday! Yeeey! I can say that I’m very proud of myself and happy to have my first Vegan cake for B-day.
Before my B-day cakes were made by my mom (she is very good in that) and I love them. Thanks mom. 🙂 But since I start working far from home and spending my B-days in other countries usually friends were surprised me with the cake. This time I wanted to make different one.
Now is very popular to be Vegan which I’m not but still I like to try new ways to keep myself healthy. I like sweets and making this yummy cake was a plesaure! Good thing is that you don’t need to spend too much time in the kichen because is very easy to make. Enjoy! Big kiss
