Vegan Chocolate Cake

Chocolate Cake seems to be my go-to cake to make for birthdays. Every birthday for the last two years, I seem to resort to making this simple chocolate cake, with a different filling and frosting. I have used this recipe to make chocolate cake with orange filling and glaze, simple chocolate cupcakes with vegan buttercream, and most recently, this recipe will be used to make a chocolate cake with raspberry filling and raspberry flavoured vegan buttercream frosting. I guess what I am trying to say is that this cake is so versatile!
