This vegan cake is not only beautiful, but it's also delicious. The cashews create a rich, filling creaminess and, when paired with fresh lemon juice, oranges, and sweetened naturally, the result is practically divine. Impress all the skeptics - and non skeptics alike - with this at your next holiday dinner. Don't tell 'em it's healthy, raw, vegan, and gluten-free until AFTER they've licked their plates clean and asked for seconds. Trust me, they will.
