Vegan Carrot Cake

Dessert, Stuff I Make | February 27, 2016 | By

Today I had the desire to do my own version of a vegan carrot cake which is pretty simple, nothing too fancy except the frosting! I find the usual frosting too sweet and thought I try something new and combined fresh ingredients with some nuts which turned out pretty amazing. It taste just as I expected and even better because of the frosting, yum!
