Ever dreamt of going into space? exploring the unknown and possibly meeting a few extraterrestrials along the way? 

The stars and moon you see each night and the sun you see everyday is part of the Milky Way Galaxy, one of the many galaxies in the universe. And who can deny, that looking out into the starry sky at night is completely calming.

For many the galaxy does not stop in the sky above-it has now landed up being in forms of baked goods and foods and is mesmerizing to the eye!

Get ready to enter the food galaxy:

1. This cake will have you feeling like you're in a spaceship!

2. Why have a cinnamon roll when you can have this?

3. Galaxy ice-cream pops! So beautiful!

4. Jazz up your meringues!

6. Mind-blown!

???? Vegan Galaxy Donuts ??This is as far as my procrastination took me today - making galactic treats for my sick boyfriend ??) Simple Donut Recipe: 1 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 cup raw cane sugar 1 1/2 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp salt 1/4 tsp nutmeg pinch of cinnamon 1/2 cup soy milk 1 tsp apple cider vinegar 1 tsp pure vanilla extract with seeds 1 tbsp ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tbsp water 1/4 cup vegan margarine (Nuttelex or Earthbalance) 1. Preheat the oven to 180 and grease a donut tray. 2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. 3. Mix together the soy milk and apple cider vinegar and let it sit for a few minutes until it thickens. 4. In a small saucepan, melt the soy milk, vanilla, flaxseed (the egg replacer) and margarine over a low heat until the butter has just melted (Do not let it boil/simmer) 5. Combine both wet and dry ingredients until a soft dough forms. 6. Using a teaspoon, spoon the mixture evenly into the donut holes, flattening out with your finger for best results. 7. Bake for 12 minutes. They are done once they have firmed up and a toothpick comes out clean (they don't need to 'brown') 8. Pop them out of the moulds and then allow to cool completely before icing. GALAXY ICING: 2-3 tbsp melted coconut oil 2-3 tbsp soy milk 1 2/3 - 2 cups powdered sugar Vegan natural food dye (Red and Blue) 1. Whisk together the melted coconut oil and soy milk and slowly begin to whisk in the powdered sugar until you reach your desired consistency. Adjust liquids if you need to. 2. To achieve the 'galaxy' effect: (This is quite hard to explain, but if you've ever done marbling as a kid using coloured dye it is essentially the same thing) 3. Using small separate bowls I worked with a little bit of icing at a time and I simply dispersed drops of vegan friendly food dye around the white icing, swirling with a spoon. Adjust the colours/saturation as you'd like. 4. Simply dip and twirl a donut halfway into the icing and gently slide it out and you'll get that 'galaxy effect' ;) 5. Dusted with vegan edible food glitter. Inspired by @h.rebel ?

7. How about these to enjoy with your next glass of milk!

8. Galaxy icing for your next batch of cupcakes- all you need to do is divide your icing into 4 bowls- add food different colours of colouring to each (preferably black, pink, purple and blue), spoon at tablespoon of each into the piping bag until all the icing is in. Its as simple as that!
