Gluten-free Flower-shaped Chocolate Cake




Gluten-free can be made into fancy presentation too. Yes, it's absolutely gluten-free chocolate cake.  Baking gluten-free in Australia can be as easy as that, substitute the normal wheat flour into ready-mix gluten-free self raising flour that you can obtain any supermarket here. Indeed it makes my life much easier instead of thinking what flour to mix with what flour.

For this cake decoration idea, I'm using a small flower-shaped cookie cutter to cut it, pipe some lovely fresh raspberries cream on top and finish it with fresh raspberries. Simple but nice. For those gluten-free diet, enjoy this!
