Believe me, I will be making this cake as my go to chocolate cake recipe from now until the end of time.
I am sincerely IN LOVE.
This cake is seriously moist, I have never had another cake that is better than this!
And what better way to pop those vibrant buttercream colors than up against a deep dark black chocolate cake?
Add some candy monster eyeballs dripping down the sides with chocolate glaze and you are all set for a spooky delicious Halloween party!
Needless to say, it isn’t just for Halloween, but since Trick or Treat day is right around the corner;
Let’s wait not another minute longer! As I know this will become your all-time favorite chocolate cake!
And oh yeah, two more things to add to the excitement~ it’s VEGAN! and your don’t need a mixer!
So whether you are vegan or not~ I promise you will love it!
