Valentine’s Day is here and you can’t spend the day without making these wonderfully chocolatey lava cakes.

Molten lava cakes have been a favorite dessert of mine ever since I was little. I clearly remember the first time I ate one; I was on vacation in Whistler (a beautiful town in British Colombia), with my family and the four of us had to share one little lava cake. I remember the hot chocolate oozing out with vanilla ice cream melting into the warm cake, my nine year old self wondering how in the world did they get the center of the cake all melty and yummy.

Gluten Free Coconut Cake

I have yet another gluten free recipe for those that are health conscious or even people who just want a delicious guilt free treat. It was actually my dad’s birthday last weekend, so I knew I had to make something that was gluten free (since he’s gluten free) and I found a recipe online on how to make a coconut cake. I decided to make my own little twist on the cake and to make it slightly healthier than it already was.

I made this into a coconut lemon cake which turned out to be absolutely delicious. This cake has eggs and a bit of butter, so it isn’t dairy free. BUT, I used fresh dates instead of sugar, so it was also sugar free. Also, don’t be intimidated about using dates. I am definitely not a big fan of raw dates (opposed to my dad who can eat them all day), but you can’t even tell that dates were used to replace the sugar.

Vegan Lego Cake (2 Tiers)

I don’t know about you, but I have always loved to play with Legos. First when I was younger and then later when I was older with my little brother. In fact, that was the theme of my brother’s 6th birthday cake I made for him last year.

I was so ecstatic when I got a cake order for making a Lego themed cake for a friend of my brother’s.

Vegan Birthday Pie Cake

On December 1st it was my dad’s 40th birthday and since he is vegan and gluten-free, I decided to make my vegan pie cake topped with toasted shredded coconut and fresh berries. The berries I used were raspberries and blueberries. I used the berries to make a border and to make the number 40 in the center of the pie cake. The pie cake is basically made of almond meal, ground flax seed, grapeseed oil, and sugar.

My dad loved the pie cake and was glad he could finally eat something I baked!
