Raw carrot cake with vanilla cashew frosting.

I have been enjoying all things raw of late and after seeing a few other recipes for raw carrot cake floating around I decided to ditch the Asda extra special hand finished carrot cake and give this one a whirl. It turned out so delicious that I am planning a raw tiramisu next. 

Raw Carrot Cake Ingredients:        
3 cups grated carrots                   
1 cup pitted dates
1 cup walnuts
2/3 cup shredded coconut
1tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 cup raisins
pinch of salt

Vanilla Cashew Frosting Ingredients:
Raw cashews (soaked overnight in water)
2/3 cup melted coconut oil
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup honey
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp lemon juice
pinch of salt

To make the raw carrot cake pulse together all ingredients in a food processor until well blended. Then press the mixture into a cake pan. Then to make the vanilla cashew frosting pulse together all ingredients in a food processor and then spread over the raw carrot cake and pop in the fridge.
