I made this tart for my friends New Years party,
not expecting there to be any competition....
Then I got to the dessert table to find two beautiful vegan pies
that my friend made – would you look at that strawberry sculpture action!?
There was some raw Mexican cacao under there...
Each pie was simply delicious, and we all celebrated the New Year with a slice of each :)
Happy New Years!
