A Challenge for You!

My birthday is coming up. I'm turning 29 for the first time!! I need to find a decadent chocolate cake recipe that is gf/cf and also a frosting recipe. If any of you have one, or have seen one, I'd love to hear about it. I'll be searching the blogs this weekend!

This might be my favorite gf cake I've made:

If you don't want coffee, you can probably skip it and replace with milk or something else.

Oooooh. The perfect chocolate cake is hard to come by, but I'm sure Jill's is awesome.

As far as frosting goes: I've been able to convert regular frostings to cf pretty easily by substituting earth balance or organic shortening for butter. I think the ratio is usually 3 cups of powdered sugar to 1 cup of butter, a little "milk" and some vanilla flavoring. Or take out some of the sugar and put in cocoa powder.

Happy Early Birthday! I think a local gf girls outing to celebrate should be in the works.... :)
