Raw Vegan Carrot Cake

April is an exciting month because we get to have an extra break from school to celebrate Easter! To me when I hear Easter, I think all thing chocolate, easter eggs, cute pastel colors, and fuzzy little bunnies! We all know that bunnies enjoy carrots so what better way to celebrate Easter than a carrot cake (raw and vegan to boot)🥕🐰. When I was younger I absolutely loved carrot cake especially all the cream cheese frosting that was slathered on top… my mouth is watering just writing about it! I wanted to recreate a healthier version of carrot cake to help counter all the mini eggs you will be consuming (stay tuned for my next recipe if you LOVE mini eggs😉).
