We’re not into the raw vegan diet nor do we know much about the symbolism of the mandala. But when we saw the elaborately beautiful cakes created by Stephen McCarty, a vegan-raw chef from LA, using only raw, vegan ingredients we could not help but wonder: do they taste as good as they look?

These artful creations, made under the name Sukhavati Raw Desserts are made from vegan ingredients and decorated with exquisite hand-drawn mandalas. The designs on McCarty’s cakes are created using natural plant and fruit extracts. Delicious flavors range from White Chocolate Blackberry and Strawberry Rose Cacao, to Lavender Lemon Blueberry and Coconut Lime White Rainbow.

We fell absolutely smitten with the kaleidoscopic mandalas that adorn each cake, tasty works of art created by vegan chef Stephen McCarty.
