Review: Delemi Bites' raw raspberry & vanilla cake

Delemi Bites are a Bristol based duo who specialise in raw, gluten free, vegan and refined sugar-free delights. Today I am going to be reviewing and reminiscing about an amazing raw Raspberry and Vanilla cake that they made for me, for a special occasion. They are a fairly new enterprise, currently you can find their selection of raw energy and protein balls in the deli counters of my favourite ethical food shops - Wild Oats and Harvest Natural Foods. 

If I was a good blogger I would have taken more photos, but honestly I was too engrossed in the cake to stop to capture cross-section shots of the two creamy, rich and fruity 'cheese' layers that sat firmly on top of the wholesome, sweet and satisfying base. There was a layer of raspberry cheesecake on top of a vanilla cheesecake layer. On the surface were raw, berry energy balls, raspberries and desiccated coconut. This was a birthday cake for my partner; vegan, raw and gluten free, and one of the best cakes I have ever eaten. Being a raw cake, you couldn't feel too guilty about binging on it as it must be made mostly of nuts, fruit, syrup, seeds and water.

I decided to approach Delemi Bites after: thoroughly enjoying their energy balls from Harvest Natural Foods' deli counter, chatting with them in said shop and browsing their Instagram gallery - all very positive experiences! They delivered the massive, heavy and obviously delicious package to my door on the morning of my partner's birthday, which was perfect.

It was a very efficient cake. The consistency, flavours and textures were all exquisite, in addition to this delight the cake was filling. So much so that we decided it would be best to freeze it and have two birthday cake celebrations with friends. If you committed to eating a slice two energy balls wide, then that would be your meal completed, appetite fulfilled. When the next celebration comes around, I will definitely send an enquiry to Delemi Bites... I'm tempted to get a raw chocolate cake just for the sake of it.
You can find them on Facebook, Instagram and Email.
