January 27th is National Chocolate Cake Day!

January 27th is National Chocolate Cake Day.  Anyone who knows me knows that if I can find a reason to eat cake I will and today seems like the perfect day to do so. Although I was running late when leaving for work tonight so I didn't have time to grab any cake, but I can post these mouthwatering pictures of cake and just pretend we got to eat it right?

If you ever wondered why you liked Chocolate Cake so much apparently there is a scientific reason behind it (Gasp, you mean its not just because it tastes good!?)

According to Nationaltoday.com  "Chocolate triggers the release of serotonin and endorphin's, which are neurotransmitters for happiness and pleasure. It also contains phenylethylamine, which elevates our mood when feel happiness or love." 

So basically when people say they love chocolate cake they aren't exaggerating their bodies really do love chocolate cake! 

Now who wants to bring me some tasty gluten free chocolate cake to the station? Just kidding, I can totally find some before the night is over :) Until then I'm just going to look at all these tasty looking cakes.
