Single serving birthday cake – paleo & vegan

Celebrating my 20th birthday with this single serving paleo and vegan birthday cake: a chocolate cake with berry jello sauce.

Can’t believe how fast time goes by… I am living on my own for over a year now, have already finished half of uni and accomplished so much this last year.

I am not the person who likes to celebrate and meet up with a lot of people, so I decided to do what I love most on my birthday: training, eating, baking, strolling through the city with my best friend and reading a good book. If you would like to see my birthday workout and how I bake this delicious vegan and paleo chocolate cake with berry jello sauce, then watch my birthday vlog!
