Raw cakes, packed with nutritious benefits, can be considered a healthier alternative to conventional cakes. Since the ingredients are not exposed to heat, their nutritional value and natural color remain intact.

Unlike traditional cakes, raw cakes don’t require baking and are free from gluten, eggs, dairy, and refined sugars. Instead, they contain only whole, natural, plant-based and unprocessed ingredients such as nuts, seeds, fruits, superfoods and unrefined sweeteners and oils.

Lore Salas (creator of @datesandavocados) teaches you, through more than 90 minutes of HD videos, all the techniques to create and decorate the most beautiful, show-stopping raw cakes! In this course, she also shares all the knowledge, secrets and tips she has acquired over the years with notes, charts and useful information to help you master the art of making raw cakes.

You won’t be on your own! You will be able to communicate with your instructor, ask her any questions you may have and benefit from her support and feedback throughout the course.
