These are both from my niece's half birthday (we have the party then because her actual birthday is Christmas Eve).

Lemon Raspberry Cake

I also made some mini fruit tarts. The base is a cashew based pastry cream. These were a hit and I'm going to make a big one for my sister's birthday. The pastry itself was from VPITS.

I love how you decorated the cake with roses on the side instead of on top. I've never seen that before. What a creative idea!

Woah. Those are gorgeous!

I think it's really adorable that you celebrate your niece on her half birthday.

Those both look lovely! What recipe did you use for the cashew pastry cream?

I think it was the one from Vegan Pie in the Sky, but since I'm lazy I used store-bought raw cashew butter instead of soaking and blending raw cashews. It was super simple that way.
