Raw Vegan Carrot Cake

This raw vegan cake with cashew cream is incredibly refreshing, moist and delicious. You would never know it was raw. With just eight (yep, 8) ingredients this cake is super easy to prepare and just takes about 45 minutes. You can leave it in the fridge for days and it actually tastes best after you leave it in the fridge overnight. Garnish it on top with some cocoa powder and crumbled walnuts.

Add another carrot layer on top and then finish it off with the rest of the cashew cream as the top layer. We added some walnut crumbles and raw chocolate powder on top for decoration.
