Last month, our friends Maya and Ryder hosted a dessert potluck. I love the idea of a get-together featuring yummy drinks (they served Hot Toddys and sparkling wine with a pomegranate syrup) and desserts. Hello, sugar!
I made Coconut Lime Cupcakes with Lime Buttercream from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World.
They were very good, but not one of my favorites from the book. But
they looked pretty and fancy, here featured on a beautiful and funky
ceramic plate my friend Kate made me.
Maya made vegan truffles using this recipe. They were awesome! She added almond extract to some and orange extract to others; I liked those best. I will definitely make these truffles.
Meghan made a raw vegan cheesecake that was great, but I don't have the recipe. It was smooth and creamy, with a sweet crust. It had cardamom in it, which was a really interesting and different taste. I'd like to try my hand at a raw vegan cheesecake sometime.
