Looking good and tasting good are not always the same thing so before I make a beautiful birthday cake for a crowd of people I want to make sure it tastes as good as it looks. I decided on a chocolate cake and was off to Whole Foods. $65 later I came home with coconut milk, Xanthum gum and all kinds of, um, different ingredients. I whipped up a Mexican chocolate cake with Kahlua ganache.
This cake is nothing short of spectacular! I'm not even kidding. It iss so good. I would order this in a restaurant and certainly make it for a crowd of people...then, after they eat it say, "By the by, that cake is gluten free. And vegan. Mwhahahahahaha."
