Flourless Chocolate Cake.

It's not been raining this few days. 

It's good, and it's bad. 

Life is short. Enjoy while you can. Do whatever you want, whatever you can. 
Sometimes it's really hard to regret over whatever you have not done and blame yourself. 

I love baking. And I love singing. 
Seriously singing. 
I hope I can express myself through singing. 
Because I don't really know how to express myself through speaking. 

Of course, baking is in my top list. 

This cake, is flourless, chocolatey and beautiful.
It's gluten free. 
Every bite is filled with chocolate lingering in your mouth. It's solid, full of love.
