Gluten and Dairy Free White Chocolate and Raspberry Cakes

Hello everyone

Today is my birthday so I thought would post a cake recipe.  This isn’t actually my birthday cakes though – I have a night off.  We are having an Edinburgh favourite of La Favourita pizzas (they do an azmaing gluten free pizza with vegan cheese) and a Sainsbury’s free from chocolate cake.

I am making a birthday cake for my niece and I to share on Saturday – going to make a bigger version of these little cakes.  I love making chocolate cigarillos, very relaxing.  I’m off to have my pizza, have a good evening.

Enjoy!
