Chocolate Cake with Coconut Cream Frosting

On 13 May, 2016, my son turned 10. In these 10 years we have seen so many phases of the life and we have to see many more. He was the only reason when I started GFCF diet and since then we had a lot of research on diet and health. My son loves the chocolate cake so I thought this time I will bake the chocolate cake on his birthday. He celebrated his birthday with his friends in the school.

Chocolate Cake with 3 types of frostings - Chocolate Coconut Cream Frosting, Vanilla Coconut Cream Frosting and Strawberry Coconut Cream Frosting

There was one time when I was working on sugar free recipes, so I was looking for different replacements for sugar. And then I posted my cake recipe - Sugar Free Vanilla Cake. This recipe used xylitol as a sugar substitute. The cake was also yummy and everybody's favorite. But somehow for some reasons, I used sugar in this chocolate cake. The recipe is almost same as my other cake, but modified to make it rich chocolate cake. And the main part of this cake are different Coconut Cream Frostings.

  2. 3 Researches SHOW How Coconut Oil Kills Waist Fat.

    The meaning of this is that you actually burn fat by eating coconut fat (also coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 studies from large medicinal magazines are sure to turn the conventional nutrition world upside down!
