Cashew Cream Naked Cake with Caramel

separator

 

I made my Decadent Plantain Chocolate Cake again. It’s such a good recipe. I even made it with green bananas because I couldn’t find plantains. It turned out great. This time I wanted a little more of a frosting on it, seeing as we were going to be at a BBQ I didn’t want to risk going with the ol’ coconut cream because as delicious as it is. It melts, really fast. So I went with cashew cream. Just a sweet, thick taste on my savory cream recipe. Of course…. caramel was involved. Caramel recipe is also in the original post. I would have just updated the original post… but I sort of wanted this beauty to have it’s own spot light… I mean… look at her!

 I think this is my prettiest cake yet! Figs and mint are such lovely finishing touches, don’t you think?
