Raw Birthday Cake suggestions!?

ajchanterajchanter Raw Newbie


My dad's b-day is coming up (the 8th) and I would like to make him a reallyyyyy nice Raw cake!!

Any suggestions!?

There are SO many nice ones out there (especially on Carmella's blog!!:) so is there any you would recommend me that you've tried!?

Btw, not chocolate please!!! as I haven't got any cacao...

But I've just received my order of Raw cashews, Raw macadamia nuts and coconut butter!

Thanks in advance!!



  • A simple way is to make a huge fudge ball, flatten and decorate with icing made from coconut oil and cashews.

    I would suggest a carrot cake. I have recipe that is outstanding. I will see if I can find it here, I am sure this is where i got it, but haven't had much luck searching. I believe I have it saved on my computer. I made it for 3 SAD eaters who loved it, and it looks pretty!

    Here it is, sorry I don't know who to give credit to, but if it's yours, thank you! It was one of the first raw recipes I made and it was great.

    Clever Carrot Cake

    This guilt inducing dessert has been transformed into a raw creation devoid of forbidden calories. Carrot cake is made with carrots, walnuts, almonds, shreds of coconut and cinnamon. It is glazed with creamy cashew frosting in place of the usual artery clogging cream cheese. Its intense nourishment, opulent look and celestial taste usually elicits cries of "It tastes better than baked".

    7 carrots

    1 cup almonds, soaked overnight

    11?2 cups walnuts

    1?2 cup flax seed, soaked overnight

    1 cup shredded coconut

    1 cup raisins

    3 tablespoons whole psyllium powder

    1 teaspoon vanilla

    1 cup raw honey

    natural waxed paper

    Process carrots, almonds, 1 cup of walnuts, and flax seed

    through Champion Juicer using the solid plate, or process in

    a food processor. Transfer mixture to a large bowl. Stir in

    shredded coconut, raisins, psyllium powder, vanilla, and

    honey, and mix well with a spoon. Cut a long strip of natural

    waxed paper 2 inches wide and apply along the wall of

    springform pan. Press mixture firmly into 10-inch springform

    pan. Refrigerate for two hours.


    1 cup raw cashews, soaked overnight

    1 cup raw honey

    juice of 1?2 lemon

    1 teaspoon vanilla

    Blend cashews, honey, lemon juice, and vanilla in Vita-Mix

    until mixture is thick and creamy. Unmold cake from springform

    pan and place on a serving platter. Ice top and sides of

    cake and garnish with walnuts. Using a sharp knife or vegetable

    peeler, peel a carrot into spiral strips and make several

    cones for decoration (see photo in back).

    Daniefon, your recipes are really great! I can't wait for your posting.

    Oh wow!

    Thanks guys!

    mmmm, yay! And I have walnuts as well! :D

    Is there a way I could replace the shredded coconut?

  • daniefondaniefon Raw Newbie

    Raw lizard, thank you!

    Ajchanter, I think you could just leave it out. I would make the batter and see. I think it just gives it a little texture and some coconut flavor. I used the food processor, so it had texture already. I would add some cinnamon to replace the flavor. I love cinnamon in carrot cake! .
