Salted caramel chocolate mousse recipe

Vegan, gluten-free, wheat-free, quick & easy

Who doesn't love a good ol' mousse. I've not actually enjoyed a mousse since being vegan, which has been about 3 years now as I didn't think you could enjoy them without egg whites, buy boy was i wrong! 
This mousse uses the aquafaba (aka chickpea brine), which acts as egg white usually found in original 'dairy' mousses.

Lola's Cupcakes | New vegan red velvet cupcake

Something exciting has just launched, a new (and delicious) addition to Lola's free from range- VEGAN RED VELVET CUPCAKES!

Lola's cupcakes are a delicious bakery that makes a range of cupcakes, cakes for special occasions, cheesecakes & layer cakes.
Every cupcake & cake is freshly baked using the finest of ingredients and decorated stunningly (like a piece of decadent art) to make it fun, indulgent & a yummy flavourful experience. 

I absolutely adore Lola's cupcakes and their range of vegan cakes! 
Read my previous blog post talking about their other flavours.
Their new addition is this beauty, the red velvet. It's a red sponge, filled with a soya chocolate ganache, topped off with red velvet and vanilla cookie dough frosting with chocolate decoration and red velvet cake crumbs. If that hasn't got you drooling, what will?!
It's 100% vegan and delicious!
The cake is ultra moist, alongside the creamy chocolate filling, it's very moorish.
I am so impressed with the cookie dough frosting. I love combining red velvet with cake & cookie!
This cupcake is taste and gets two thumbs up from me! I highly recommend it! :D

Lola's have various stands and shops dotted all around the UK so make sure to check out your nearest store here.
