These Vegan cakes are completely healthy. They consist of ethical animal ingredients and provide not only for physical health, but also for a good conscience. The food colors that were used are exclusively of natural plant and fruit extracts. Some of the delicious cake creations are the banana nut chocolate cheese cake, the coconut – lime cheesecake, the acai berry Blueberry mango – cheese cake, just a few to name a few. There’s something for every taste.
The patterns themselves are also quite diverse. Some are more geometric, others reminiscent of snow crystals or star, and still others are a stylised imitation of flowers. Each model is unique and has something magical in itself. Not for nothing the Mandalas are used as tools for deep mental concentration in the far East and in the West.
