I had visions people. Visions of chocolate and raspberry and hearts galore.
I totally went for it.
While this cake turned out nothing like I had envisioned, I really like the idea behind it.
I carved out a few tunnels to make a surprise-inside, then I went back and filled those tunnels with buttercream.
I think this is one of the ugliest cakes I have ever made. Ha!
Here is a recipe for the frostings:
The combination of chocolate and raspberry has been around forever and there is a good reason… its stinkin awesome. I especially love the flavors of the rich chocolate cake with the sweet raspberry frosting covered in the semi-sweet chocolate glaze.
I used this recipe for the chocolate cake. Its tried and true and fabulous and you will love it!
Here are some other surprise-inside cakes and methods I use to create cakes like this!
