Mermaid

If mermaids exist, they’d probably like cake bites too! I tried coloring mine purple with butterfly pea powder, but they turned out more blue than purple… 🐳🐬🌊 Aside from that, the cake bites were a major success, and took me right back to my childhood of colorful birthday cakes.

Check out this recipe for a vegan, no bake, gluten-free, mermaid cake bites with butterfly pea coloring and cocoa butter chocolate, finished with vanilla lemon icing. It was nearly impossible to find dairy-free white chocolate in the stores, so I made my own using cocoa butter. Who wants one?
