Inspiration is everywhere if we choose to see the world through creative eyes. I saw a colourful cake floating around the cyber world and decided for it to be my next project. As always nature is my muse and I used natural fruit pigments, herbs and / or vegetable extracts as natural colourings. This cake is a beautiful idea for a children’s birthday party, assuming there are no nut allergies. As we know there are many artificial colours and additives in processed goods. It’s refreshing to see something look so colourful yet made by honest effort and the goodness of nature. This Raw Rainbow Dreamcake appeals to the child in everyone.

  • 1 cup raw macadamia kernals or almonds
  • 1 cup fresh medjool dates
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 2 cups raw cashews, soaked for 1-4 hours (the longer you soak the easier it is to blend and you won’t need a high-powered blender)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract or bean
  • 1/2 cup raw coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup raw honey/ agave/ maple syrup/ coconut sugar
    1. In a food processor blend the macadamias, dates and salt until it’s at the texture or your preference. The mixture will form a sticky dough that can easily be pressed into a springform cake pan.
    2. In a high-powered blender process the cashews, coconut oil, sweetener and vanilla until creamy.
    3. Choose your colours and blend in the fruits and powders starting with the lightest. I portioned the filling to mix the strongest colours separately. This is the longest process and I think I used about 20 different spoons!
    4. Place in the freezer to set.
    5. Serve and Enjoy

      I missed something in the directions about the fabulous looking Rainbow Dream Cake. I read and re-read. I don’t know how to make it. Fruits make colors. What do you do with them to get the cake looking like the picture? The crust can be just all dates, without nut. Cashews could be replaced with? But I’d love to know how it went together to look like it should. Thank You!
