Superfood baobab cupcakes frosted with peach flavoured cashew cream, perfect for special occasions or simply as a fabulous dessert to end a healthy meal. These look beautiful decorated with fresh peaches, which together with the baobab provide a dose of rejuvenating Vitamin C. Cashews on the other hand help with the formation of collagen, which contributes to glowing, beautiful skin. Try not to eat most of the frosting out of the bowl and before it gets to the cupcakes! A challenge almost everybody fails at..
