CHOCOLATE CAKE WITH AVOCADO ICING
I have always wanted to try a vegan chocolate mouse or icing so I took the opportunity to make Orgran’s chocolate cake and top it with this Avocado Icing. I was so surprised at how good it tasted! I always tell you guys the truth as to who in the family loved it or hated it. Kids loved it so much they asked to lick the spoon! But my husband wouldn’t have a bar of it! He actually scrapped it off! OMG it was hilarious! I expected the opposite. But to be fair, my husband doesn’t like avocado much and the kids LOVE it. Makes sense … right?
Definitely worth giving it a go and especially nice to know there is an option for vegans or even for us during lent! Happy day to you all. Enjoy x
