I've been having a bit of a fiddle with some variations you can pop on your chocolate cakes this festive season, rather than just a sickly sweet icing made with sugar (that's what my kids normally like haha).
It gets hard when you don't have things like cream or cream cheese so I've been having a fiddle with the Nature's Charm Coconut Whipping Cream and I have two options that worked well for me and both of my kids liked, it just depends what type of result you want.
If you want a really firm mousse filling you could make a batch of my vegan chocolate mousse recipe and let it set in the fridge. It will easily spread on your cakes and you can even pop it in a piping bag and pipe on your cakes. You can find that recipe here :-)
The other option I worked with shown above is a softer more cream like result. I simply whipped a very cold can of Nature's Charm Coconut Whipping Cream and then I mixed in 100g of room temperature Nature's Charm Coconut Chocolate Fudge Spread. I let it sit the fridge for a while to firm up but it didn't set anywhere near as firm as the mousse so it was lovely and soft like regular whipped cream. I grated some Sweet William Sugar Free Dark Chocolate on top. If you make this chocolate cream, I would pop the cream on just before serving and don't leave it out of the fridge if there is some left or the cream will melt.
Hope you find those ideas helpful!
Enjoy! Lisa x
