Vegan Chocolate cake

Vegan chocolate cake! Yes!

I am not a birthday celebrating kind of person. It’s just not important to me. vegan chocolate cake

If I had to pick a cake to celebrate my birthday like it was a week ago, this chocolate would have been my top pick!

I am a cake snob! I have never cared for the boxed stuff. A cake is one of those things that are worth the extra TLC.

The flavors should downright flirt with my palate or it’s just not for me. It has to be moist, the more chocolate the better. I also want to remember it years down the road and always try to recreate the experience. You know, like poetry! That’s why I usually abstain from made to order cakes at random places.

This chocolate was made to be shared. I had a slice with my husband while enjoying a glass of red wine. A rare treat!

This vegan chocolate cake reminds me of the countless Fridays spent at this French-inspired baking shop in Haiti. 

Marie Beliard. There is a  cake or a treat for every taste. Although I wasn’t vegan back then, making this vegan chocolate is as close I will probably get!

Their expresso is a thing out the world! God knows I am picky about where I get my shot of joe!

As you may know, I suck at icing and cake decorating, so please don’t mind that! I am here for deliciousness today not the looks!

Cake decorating always bring the worst part out of me. I am fresh out patience for that. I have made my peace with it!
