Valentines Day Cake
In: Recipes, Sweets & Treats0

You must make this Valentine’s Day cake…

I NEVER make layer cakes because they always seem complicated and have so many ingredients. This cake was SIMPLE and because it’s raw, you can’t go wrong. Trust me, if I invented it, you can make it with two left hands. I made the crust the night before and finished the cake off the next day.

It’s so delicious and has great ingredients. You can cut up some fruit and serve it for lunch!
We’ll be having a picnic cake lunch in the living room this year!

I suggest using a spring-form pan and using a bit of coconut oil or parchment paper around the edges. But you can make them in cupcake holders too.
