Delightful Chocolate Cake

This cake is absolutely and undeniably delicious. Two layers of chocolate, raspberry filling, chocolate frosting. Here are my lessons learned from this gem:

GF can be pretty expensive. This cake has 4 cups of almond flour and a few cups of agave syrup. Those two ingredients, in those amounts, cost over $15. This cake is for special occasions.

Do not buy generic frosting! I used Betty Crocker or Duncan Hines for this cake. A few weeks ago I bought store-brand frosting that had wheat in it and I was sick for about a week.

Cakes this dense should be made into layer cakes. Even in small discs, the middle collapsed- probably because of the liquids that the agave adds.

Take this cake when I really want to impress people. Because it totally does.
