Little Naked Chocolate Cake (Gluten Free + Vegan Option)

Little Naked Chocolate Cake (Gluten Free + Vegan Option)

Albeit three days late, we’re throwing Chew a virtual birthday on Radiant Rachels today! And no party is completely without cake. In fact, I like to believe that a party isn’t a real party without cake. Can I get an amen? Amen!

It’s been nearly four years since I’ve met Chew, so I can no longer say that we’re “best friends that just met”. Birthdays are not just about celebrating another year of life, but also remembering and being grateful for all the good times we’ve had. To have a soul mate like Chew, who literally lives a block away from me, to depend on, I’m the most blessed person on the Earth. She’s changed me as into a person with a more caring heart, a more lively spirit, a sillier personality, and a more determined mindset. My mental and physical well-being has dramatically improved because of her influence and support.
