To be honest, It took me 50 shots to take this photo..sorry I am not really a good photographer. I wish I could be someday…While taking photos, we start eating the cake then I realized I havent take a full photo shot of the cake…huhuhuhu!!!..A very sinful chocolate cake!!!….Did you know that chocolates are high in potassium and magnesium, chocolate also provides us with several vitamins – including B1, B2, D, and E. As for calories, no one is going to claim chocolate is the quintessential diet food. But still, it is low enough for a dieter to enjoy one as an occasional treat. Besides, indulging your chocolate craving from time to time can help prevent the bingeing that is a dieter’s worst enemy….
