White Chocolate Strawberry Cake

White Chocolate Strawberry Cake

I don’t know about you, but for me whenever I go food shopping, as I scan the aisles it is there that I come up with endless ideas for new cakes and pastries.

That, along with my insatiable hunger cravings are the two most alluring factors.

As the end of summer is approaching, also ending is the abundance of fresh fruits and berries that come along with the season.

Knowing this, I decided to have one last hurrah with a few pounds of fresh strawberries to make this White Chocolate Strawberry Cake.

Vegan Apple Crepe Cake

Vegan Apple Crepe Cake

My favorite season is here! Fall!

I love it not only for the cool weather, but for all the flavors it brings.

Pumpkins and apples are typically the two most popular as I am sure you are seeing them everywhere (mostly pumpkins, am I right?).

Well if you are like me you won’t mind, since the spices are deeper like nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves; and the desserts can get a bit more decadent since we need that extra warmth and calories to get us through the chilly nights!

At least that’s what I tell myself anyway!

While I’ve already shared my recipes for Pumpkin Pie and Pumpkin Cheesecake I thought, “Hmm how to use up these two bags of apples I have here?”

Opera Cake

Vegan Opera Cake

Maybe because I have been binge watching the British Baking Championship on Netflix, but I feel like I want to get back to the classics lately.

For me, there is nothing more elegant, sophisticated or brilliant than the Opera Cake.

Four thin layers of moist hazelnut cake with mocha and chocolate buttercream in between each layer.

Iced with silky chocolate ganache and then to prove just how rich this cake is, each slice gets bedazzled with gold leaf.

(Yes, I said bedazzled)

Vegan Tiramisu

Vegan Tiramisu

The other day a friend and I met up for lunch at this awesome restaurant that offers both a vegan and non vegan menu.

Everything from soup, salad to dessert had vegan options even the oil for dipping the bread they specify is vegan!

How cool right!?

The lunch was great and of course we decided to go for dessert and we split the Vegan Tiramisu.

O- M- G- AWFUL!

It was really bad.

So this prompted me to get into the test kitchen to make one of my own.

Cookies and Cream and Custard Cake

Vegan Cookies and Cream and Custard Cake

Ok so I’m not going to lie.

I think vegan desserts are just better. There I said it.

I will be honest though, as I was creating the recipe for this new Cookies and Custard and Cream Cake, I had my reservations as to how it was actually going to turn out.

Because let’s face it, vegan desserts can be challenging.
