Raw Vegan Carrot Cake

Raw Vegan Carrot Cake

I made this raw vegan carrot cake for Kenny’s birthday cake! And it is incredibly delicious and rich with the almond, cream-cheese icing on top! The cake is denser than cooked carrot cake, but it is moist with a slight crunch. This recipe is very quick and easy to make and so worth it! It was adapted from Go Raw Carmen.

I garnished the cake with shredded carrots. And I decided to use a vegetable peeler to make ribbons out of a carrot to form a rose. It turned out well and Kenny was very pleased with his birthday cake! We have other recipes for you as well, including his delicious birthday dinner.
