NO BAKE PALEO CHOCOLATE CAKE

If you have a celebration coming up, or better yet just have the urge to make some baked goods - check out our recipe for a NO BAKE paleo chocolate cake. You won't be able to get enough of this new spin on the classic baked cake. 

This cake is for all of our chocolate lovers. And with using whipped coconut cream, we are able to keep this recipe vegetarian friendly as well! It's really a recipe for everyone to have their cake and eat it too.
