And it’s summer.

And it’s actually really warm here in Scotland.

So we sit out and drink juice (apple, red pepper and celery) by the lavender:

Vegan Cake Mix and Hazelnot Gnawbles

vegan chocolate cake mix from Creative Narure makes a wonderful cake!

The cake above was made with the cacao rich vegan cake mix from Creative Nature. The little round sweets are their Gnawbles which are basically vegan Maltesers!

The mix makes a gorgeous, sweet and luxurious cake – you just add oil and milk of your choice – and the Gnawbles are delightfully crunchy and delicious.
