Even though this peppermint cream cake does not have pretty pink sprinkles it is loaded with flavor! Love the addition of our 4 ingredient green fudge to make a beautiful green layer in between.  Not sure which twin thought of that but brilliant!!

We just love our raw cream cakes! They just taste better than traditional cheesecakes. Okay, we were never fans of regular cheesecakes, but we really do adore our raw cheesecakes!

And we think you will fall in love with this recipe as well. You won’t be missing any dairy here. Nope.  Promise this raw cream cake is so soft and creamy that it literally melts in your mouth.

  3. My son has a peanut and cashew allergy, is there anything you would recommend for a substitute? He can have almonds but I haven’t tried other nuts. All of your recipes look so awesomely good!!

    1. you could use almonds to replace the cashews, might not get as creamy, another one is macadamia nuts not sure if he can have those, but they might work.
