Vegan Chocolate Berry Ice Cream Cake

Cake is one of the best friends you'll ever have, and no one has the right to take your best friend away from you. I've tested several raw cake recipes and come up with my own, which is free of refined sugar, dairy, gluten and preservatives. It stores in the freezer and only needs a quick thaw before serving, so if you have the self control of a monk it will last for some time. Enjoy this no bake cake!
