Food4Thought is a commentary on the ethics of eating, food justice and contemporary ideas on food democracy as well as recipes. Did I just say the same thing three different ways?

Pamela's Chocolate Cupcake

The best gluten free mixes I have found are Pamela's - friends don't even know the difference. My daughter's 14 year old friends snuck up in the middle of the night and ate them so I think they passed the litmus test.
Since my philosophy is ALmost all raw, I whipped up an orange cashew cream as frosting.
Orange Cashew Cream
1 1/2 cups cashews, soaked for a few hours or overnight
Add cashews to Vita-mix and add enough water to fill just shy of the cashews
3 Tbsp coconut palm sugar
1/4 tsp orange extract
little vanilla extract or powder
Puree till smooth.
