Desserts...tasty, tasty desserts!

I have been making lots of sweet things lately, and I wanted to share two awesome recipes with you. 

How awesome does this look? This was the cake I made my brother for his birthday. 

Chocolatey Chocolate Cake

1 chocolate cake mix (ex. Cherrybrook Kitchen)
1 vegan  chocolate pudding mix
1 cup Tofutti sour cream
1 cup canola oil (or vegetable oil)
4 egg replacers 
1/2 cup warm water
2 cups vegan chocolate chips

Mix all ingredients together and pour into greased bunt cake pan. Bake at 350 for 50-55 min. Cool for 1 hour before inverting (this is the hardest part :). While it's cooling, make frosting sauce.

3/4 cup vegan chocolate chips
3 Tbsp Earth Balance
1/4 tsp vanilla 

Pour that over cake once it is inverted and you've got yourself a chocolatey chocolate cake!

I made this for a halloween BBQ we are having tonight :)

Chocolate Croissant Bread Pudding
I veganized this from THIS recipe. 

1 stick Earth Balance
1 cup sugar (raw if you like)
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
5 egg replacers
2 1/2 cups soy creamer
12 croissants
1/2 cup raisins
3/4 cup vegan chocolate chips

Go to the link above to see how to make the recipe :) Enjoy!

Strawesome Giveaway!

I haven't done a giveaway for you guys in a while, so I thought it was about time I did one again. Strawesome is an awesome company that makes reusable, stylish glass straws & the lovely Daedra from Strawesome is allowing me to host a blog giveaway for one free "artist's choice" straw!

 This is a picture of one of their bent glass straws.

This is one of my straws I was using to drink green juice!

This is a picture of homemade bubble tea that I am drinking from a Strawesome straw. 

This was today's smoothie :)

For those of you who have not heard of Strawesome yet, these straws are hand made from borosilicate glass. They are also guarenteed not to break! If your straw breaks, it will be replaced. I LOVE these straws. I cannot say enough good things about them. I actually have an order coming in the mail or two more. My husband and I use them every day!
