Vegan Valentine's Day Cake


Love should be remembered in small ways every day, there is no denying that, but every now and then it feels good to commemorate it. And when is a better time to celebrate love than during the romantic holiday Valentine's day?

This Valentine's day replace the conventional flowers and chocolates and share your love in literally the sweetest way possible! This frozen raspberry lemon cake is so delicious and unique in flavour, it'll surely leave a long-lasting impression.

Nothing says love like handmade presents, home baked goods, customized greeting cards. Personalized gifts always go a long way, I think because the time and effort spent speaks so much more than a simple purchase from any store. After all, presents are not about the price tag, it's the thought and effort that counts.


While most of us will be spending Valentine's day at home this year, let us make the most of it! Share love in the sweetest way possible, and as we like to believe, food is a great way to show affection. While Valentine's day may prioritize your better half, let's remember that it is also a day of affection for friends and family.
