Vegan chocolate cake with strawberry frosting



School will be over in a week and to celebrate I made this vegan chocolate  cake with strawberry frosting. This is a truly scrumptious cake and you will not even realize that is fully vegan. Since Sofia is allergic to dairy product I had to try this strawberry frosting made out of cashews; let me tell you, I was a bit sceptic, I couldn’t believe that it will taste the same as the real one and…….OMG even better. My son is very conservative when it comes to cake and when I asked d him to try the frosting he was like;” MOOOORE”….I have to say the cake was a success and was finished the same day that was made.
