Egg and Dairy Free Chocolate Birthday or Celebration Cake

In this day and age allergies and food sensitivities are more and more common. There are also increasinlgy wonderful recipes that mean allergy sufferers can be included in scrummy treat food. This recipe was found by my daughter on You Tube and we adapted it for a dairy free friend. The result is tasty, moist and delicious. As a note I am also going to try making it gluten and wheat free as well using 1/3 tapioca, 1/3 rice and 1/3 potato flour. I will update this hub once I know it will work.
