Vegan Chocolate Death Cake

Vegan Chocolate Death Cake was by far one of my favorite cakes from a restaurant in Athens, GA where I went to school. The Grit was one of my favorite places to go for brunch, lunch or dinner and there cakes were always amazing. Lucky they decided to make a cookbook a few years back and I figured i would share the Vegan Chocolate Death Cake.

Enjoy,
