gluten-free & vegan lemonade cake

Before I decided to completely re-do my website, I made the most delish cake. This gluten-free & vegan lemonade cake, is like taking a sip of iced cold lemonade on a hot day. Although it is currently snowing in Montana, I am determined to find the last batch of strawberries at the grocery store.
