Decadent Gluten Free Chocolate Cake

Posted on Jul 16, 2013
One of my biggest complaints/obstacles with Gluten free food options is that a lot of it tastes like cardboard.
The super sweet Hannah, makes some amazing looking gluten free treats and she has so graciously graced us with one of her beautiful looking sweet treats and I am so very excited about it!
