Chocolate Raspberry Layer Cake

I shared a picture of this cake on my Facebook page when I made it for my daughter’s birthday. When I posted it, I said I would share it soon.

Well, that was back in April and here it is May 16th. What can I say except that life got busy and I forgot about it until I saw a picture of it the other day on my computer.

So, I am sorry it took me so long, but this cake is so good that really it was worth the wait. And not only was this cake really good, it was very easy. 

My daughter actually came up with this cake herself. She could not decide on what kind of cake she wanted so she spent some time looking around my site. She came to me and asked if I could combine this cake with this filling and frost it with ganache.

I love that she was creative enough to think it would all go well together. I think she is going to be my child that out cooks and bakes me someday. Her creativity in the kitchen amazes me. When I looked at the recipes she wanted to combine, I knew it would work well.

It turned out great. It was rich and delicious and everything a birthday cake should be.

  1. oh yum! i wish my birthday didn’t just happen- this looks delicious.

  2. What a beautiful cake! I love that your daughter “designed” her own cake. 🙂 I can only imagine how delish this is! 😉 Happy Birthday to your daughter. 🙂


  3. Oh my, raspberries and chocolate, two of my favorite things. Tell your daughter she was truly inspired to ask for this. I will certainly be giving that raspberry filling ago. Thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend.
