Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Layer Cake – Low Carb and Gluten-Free

Because … OMG! Look at this picture. Now, according to her, this cake serves 20, so in my house the carb count would be higher (no way in hell that would be 20 servings)! I don’t dare make this one (at least not yet). So, feel free and let me know how it turns out!
