  3. Optional: Add more sweetener to taste.

  4. Cover the one layer of cake generously with frosting, before placing the second cake layer on top. Decorate with frosting any way you like.

This recipe was inspired by one of my favourite food bloggers Chocolate Covered Katie. Almond flour is very expensive, which is why I opted to substitute half with coconut flour.
