I got the book "Sweet Gratitude" a few weeks ago, and had the opportunity to use it this weekend for my 10-year old daughter's birthday party. This picture is of her with both cakes, we made 2 because we weren't sure if we'd need extra or not for the amount of people that came. I made the strawberry shortcake, and it came out delicious! I'm glad I tested it ahead of time by making 1/2 of a batch because it made the actual birthday cake making process a lot easier. I'm really looking forward to trying more recipes from this book in the future!

I've made the chai and pumpkin cheesecakes as well as the fudge and chocolate chunk cookies from this book and they turned out great as well. I am glad to hear and see how wonderful the cakes turned out. WOnderful presentation!
The only problem that I can see with the cakes is how much almond flour they call for. OMG!!! I don't really drink that much almond milk. So, I hate to waste. What did you do with all of the almond milk that those cakes must have created?

No, I'm afraid we didn't get any pics of the inside, and I regret that now. The party was just so busy that I didn't get time to do it.

We enjoyed several batches of chia pudding with our almond milk, and also used some for green smoothies. With my large family it wasn't that difficult to get enough flour, but I can see how it could be a problem. I freeze each batch of almond pulp as I make the milk, so that helps to be able to save it up over time.

Everyone liked it pretty well as far as I could tell, I got a few verbal compliments, nothing simply amazing or anything like that. But I've pretty much let go of my expectations of what others will think of my raw food. If they like it - great! If they don't - oh well, it's their loss and our family is healthier for it. I offered to make my daughter a cooked healthy cake (no sugar, whole wheat flour, etc) but she wanted a raw cake. I was very pleased of course (I'm all raw but my family isn't) and it feels good to know that my eating is rubbing off on her.
Today I'm in the middle of making persimmon cake for my husband's birthday which is today. Their b-days are only a week apart, and I have to say that I'm tired of cake-making! But I know he'll like it, I made it once before and he loved it then. My daughter wants to write "Happy Birthday" on it with frosting, so I just made some raw chocolate mousse and I'm hoping that will be thick enough for her to use. I'll try to take a picture of it later today and post it, and make sure I get the inside of the cake too. The recipe for this one comes from sunnyrawkitchen.blogspot.com.
After these two cakes I'm going to be happy to have a break for awhile until my next child's birthday comes along in November!
