Red Velvet Cupcakes

If there was any cake mixture that was made for Valentines Day it’s Red Velvet. This cake mix is so indulgent and we love making it ourselves using our Cacao Powder. ⁠

We used this fab recipe from @allergylicious and swapped in our Creative Nature Cacao powder – for a boost of goodness!
Our Cacao Powder is high in fibre and healthy fats, we love using this superfood in so many different recipes from mousse, hot chocolate and cake mixes. ⁠

As with all our products it is free from all top 14 allergens. Also school safe and absolutely vegan friendly!
