Even if you get a gluten-free cake, it’s still full of sketchy ingredients.

So I decided to make my own.

And it turned out AWESOME.

I have to say that the clear star of this cake is the frosting. I’m in LOVE. I don’t normally love coconut, but it’s super creamy from the coconut and it just tastes amazing. I think it’s my favorite frosting ever, including the frosting that is made out of 5 pounds of powdered sugar. It’s that good.
