Heels Cake - Gluten Free Chocolate & Brown Sugar cake with Chocolate Buttercream
Cancer, the dreaded "C" word. It has become such an epidemic in our society that people are loath to even mention its name. Cancer is a disease that can affect many different parts of the body. Some of these diseases are more serious than others. It is not only the disease that is painful but also the many way of treating it. Radiation treatments may kill the cancer but are also dangerous for the body. Chemotherapy comes with many side affects such as hair loss and severe nausea. The many faces of this disease challenge an individual to show their fighting spirit and will to live. What a blessing to have support from family and friends.
I received a request from Benita who wanted to lift the spirits of her friend who was recently diagnosed with cancer, by providing her with a special "girly" cake. Brainstorming, her requirements were that the cake be made gluten free, made with chocolate and brown sugar. The design would be somthing "girly" to make her smile when she saw the surprise.
