Dear readers, Happy New Year! We hope you had a lovely Holiday season. We are back blogging with renewed enthusiasm and looking forward to many new adventures awaiting The Kind Bride in 2019.
We can all agree that getting back to working mode is never quite so easy. Perhaps, today’s selection of decadent vegan desserts will make it a bit sweeter for all of us! Just don’t count calories on these ones! After all, vacation mode is still lingering and we need one more excuse to overcome returning to our normal routines. We thought these beautiful and yummy sweets could be a hit at your bridal shower or engagement party, or any occasion you can find to keep the celebration going!

VEGAN APPLE BUTTER FILLED CINNAMON SUGAR DOUGHNUTS
Crispy on the outside, light and fluffy on the inside, filled with a very creamy apple butter sauce and sprinkled with cinnamon and ginger… My Vibrant Kitchen doughnuts are as decadent as it gets.
VEGAN COOKIE DOUGH CHEESECAKE BARS
Vegan sweets are often healthier alternatives then animal-based fat desserts, and this is definitely the case for the cookie dough cheesecake bars by Le Petite Eats, they have a silky smooth cheesecake filling made from cashews, studded with chocolate chip cookie dough bites and a pecan-based baked crust.
ESPRESSO AVOCADO CHOCOLATE MOUSSE
Is there anything more decadent then chocolate mousse? I really can’t think of anything… And, with the delicious espresso flavor and nutrition-packed avocado you won’t even feel guilty eating Unconventional Baker mousse!

It ain’t decadent if it ain’t chocolaty, right? A classic, these vegan chocolate cupcakes by Shivani Loves Food are fluffy and moist.

Cheesecakes are a hit in any season. These heart shaped mini cakes by Wallflower Kitchen are seems to be made especially for a bridal theme party!
HAZELNUT VEGAN CUPCAKES
This Pies and Tacos recipe got me at hazelnuts. But when I found out it’s also paleo and no baking required I was on the moon!

So much color and flavor in a small bite! Fragrant Vanilla truffles are infused with CBD oil which combats inflammation and stress, adding the hemp benefit without tasting its flavor. The truffles are packed with matcha, mint and chocolate zing!

A feminist and independent spirit since she could remember (her childhood heroines were Pippi Longstockings and Katharine Hepburn) Daniela Degrassi found her creative outlet as a lifestyle photographer, working mainly in Northern California where she lived for 15 years before moving back to her native Italy to continue to be her autistic sister’s primary caregiver. Vegan since 2014, she found a perfect way to carry her message of compassion while celebrating her love for the wedding industry launching The Kind Bride in February 2018.
