For dessert you can eas- ily make or order vegan cupcakes or a cake. We have a local bakery that makes the most delicious vegan cupcakes! Some of the flavors we’ve served at parties are strawberry coconut, maple raspberry, rocky road, and choco- late peanut butter. Many guests have said they were the best cupcakes they’ve ever had! Another fun dessert I like to do for birthday parties is homemade vegan ice cream cake. It’s actually pretty easy to prepare and is always a big hit. I usually alternate layers of ice cream sandwiches, non-dairy ice cream, and cookie crumbs. After a few layers, I spread some coconut whip on the top, sprinkle with more cook- ie crumbs, drizzle with a mixture of coconut oil and cacao, and let set in the freezer for a while. These are made even more fun because you can custom- ize it with your favorite ice cream flavors. RAISEVEGAN.COM Raise Vegan 25
