Raw Vegan Mint Chocolate Cake

I love cake and eat it too! Especially this raw mint chocolate cake. There were days in my life when I would eat a whole Pepperidge Farm 3-layer Chocolate Fudge cake in a day by myself. Mmmm so good. But so bad. Tons of not-so-good-for-you ingredients so I had to let that cake go. But not to worry! I still get my cake, but it’s made from real ingredients, at home and it’s not even difficult. Raw cakes are the best thing I’ve discovered since seaweed :). I can get creative with superfoods, nuts, seeds and create all kinds of cakes. Only imagination is the limit here!
