Chocolate Raspberry Cake

July 28, 2010

I was asked to bring a chocolate raspberry cake to Heather's birthday party last weekend, and bring it I did.

This thing is monstrous, so tall (even without the raspberries on top) that I couldn't put the cover over the cake plate. On the drive to the party I held it in my lap and yelled Don't Ruin My Cake!! at Steve every time the car hit a bump. It was fun.

Recipe from Smitten Kitchen, altered only in that I poured the batter into three 8" cake pans rather than two 10" pans. The reason being that I own 8" pans and do not own 10" pans.

I made the entire chocolate frosting recipe despite the recipe suggesting to halve it when using the raspberry filling in between the cake layers (and a layer of raspberry filling on top because I could).

I had enough chocolate frosting and cake bits left over (from leveling the three layers) that I made cake pops. I didn't get photos of them and they didn't last long at the party.
