This is an easy to make cake that is sooo delicious. Many variatons allow you to adapt to any holiday or occasion.
Step 1: Ingredients
1 box Chocolate Cake Mix
Eggs, Oil, water as mix calls for
One 12oz. bag Frozen Raspberries
24 oz. Cream Cheese icing
2 Tbs. Raspberry Preserves
¼ cup flour
Chocolate Sundae Syrup
Step 2: Prepare Cake Mix
Preheat oven and prepare cake mix as package directs.
Step 3: Prepare Pans & Make Batter
Pour batter into two 8” round pans.
Step 4: Add Raspberries & Bake
Let cool enough to handle.
Step 5: Move to Serving Plate
Step 6: Add Top Layer and Ice
I like to put some icing on while the cake is still warm so it melts in. Fill in the gaps between cake tops (middle of cake) with icing. Let cool then chill to make the first layer of icing firm and easier to work with.
Ice the sides then the top of the cake with the remaining icing until you no longer see the chocolate.
Step 7: A Wonderful Presentation
