Raw Cherry-Cashew Birthday Cake and Minion Bananas

Raw Cherry-Cashew Birthday Cake and Minion Bananas

It's been a year again!

Happy birthday to our son!

Last week we all celebrated a wonderful birthday.

Due to the large number of 10 years, we of course wanted to make it a fantastic day.
We tried to find something special to serve.

Something colorful and tasty, but also healthy and suitable for children...?

Since we like to have enough time for our birthday-kid on such a special day, it must be something which can be prepared a day in advance.

So, birthdays in our house are mostly pretty relaxed and everyone can enjoy the day.

And is there also a birthday cake?

Yes, of course, this is simply part of a birthday, isn't it?

This year we decided to go for a delicious raw food cake - which are, by the way, a big hit at our house at the moment. They are healthy, colorful and satisfying.

Well what do you say, doesn't it look yummy?


You can find the recipe below.

And to keep up the tradition, we also wanted to serve a fresh and healthy little treat to the children in our son's school class.

On the homepage of Partydelights.co.uk, we found these absolutely brilliant Minion Bananas.

Don't they look gorgeous?
And which child doesn't like to eat bananas?

We have to admit, the preparation for 24 of these bananas took us awhile, but the effort has fully paid off and everyone loved the bananas.


We hope you like our recipe too.

Do you have any special ideas for a children's birthday?
We love to read from you!
