"The Sweet Pastries Module was one of my favorites of the course, if not the favorite. I loved the recipes and the versatility of the ingredients. I loved how the ingredients blended so well with each other to created amazing flavors and stunning desserts.
I was so impressed with the chocolate cream pie, the raw rolls, and the lemon raspberry cake (I was so skeptical about a zucchini cake) but the results were incredible."

"Probably one of the best desserts I have ever had. I had so much pleasure in creating this pie. Everything was right! Flavors were beautiful, it looked gorgeous – beyond this world! I will repeat this recipe over and over again!"
"The scones recipe has been a success. I did it with fewer dates and without stevia. My apples were really sweet the same for the carrots, so I didn’t need to add more sweet to the recipe. I decided to use fresh blueberries. The inside part was moist, I love it. And outside like crunchy, I am not sure if that was the idea, but it works perfectly for my batch. I shared the scones with friends, and they were so happy with them, in fact, they ate all of them. Funny when my friends eat them, knowing is vegan. So that is a very good signal. I served with “maple butter”, and it was very yummy!"
