vegan carrot cake with vanilla-coconut cream


For a very long time I thought you can not put vegetables into a cake. That doesn’t taste good. A few years ago I worked at a wedding and the wedding cake was a carrot cake. Since then I am addicted to carrot cake. Especially I love the combination of carrot cake and vanilla coconut cream. I hope you like this vegan carrot cake as much as I do. Of course there is a video for you guys.
