I had visions people. Visions of chocolate and raspberry and hearts galore.
- 2 sticks room temperature butter
- 1/2 c raspberry jam
- 2 tsp. water
- 4 c powder sugar
- 1 c semi-sweet chocolate I used chips
- 6 tbsp. butter
For Raspberry Buttercream:
- Combine powder sugar, butter, jam and water in stand mixer. Start on low for 30 seconds, then turn to medium and mix until fully combined, about 2 minutes.
For Chocolate Glaze:
- Place butter and chocolate into a small saucepan over low heat. Stir until chocolate is melted and butter is incorporated. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly

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!
