  1. These are such great recipes - thanks for sharing. I love experimenting with new sweet things / cake ideas.
    I have just discovered an alternative for flour - banana flour which I got online from Indigo Herbs. Its lovely as it adds a lovely texture and sweetness so you don't need to add a sugar alternative.

    1. Thanks for the tip, I will look it up and try :).

  2. What a varied selection of no bake recipes. Carrot cake is one of my favourites but I've never tried a no bake version, it looks delicious. Thanks for sharing at #HandmadeMonday

  3. The chocolate tart looks tasty!

  4. I am startled that these are all no bake. The chocolate one looks phenomenal. Thanks for sharing
