This is a recipe for a rasberry chocolate layer cake. It turns out perfect every time and looks always fantasic.
Step 1: What You Need
Here is what you need:
- 3 cake bases (of cause you can bake them instead of buying them ready made)
- 250g frozen rasberrys
- 1 1/2 cups of sugar
- 1/2 cup of butter
- 1 1/2 cups of icing sugar
- a zip of milk
- 200 ml whipped cream
- 1/4 cup of butter
- 1/4 cup of cocoa powder
Step 2: Rasberry
Save about 14 rasberrys and put them on a plate. Put the rest of the rasberrys into a pan and heat it up. Add 1/2 cup of sugar and give it a good stir. Put the sauce through a small sieve and get the rasberry water out of the rasberrys.
Now use the rasberrys and put them on the first layer of your cake. (picture 1-3)
Put a second layer of cake on top of the rasberrys.
Step 3: Chocolate
Make the chocolate cream. To do that mix 1/2 cup of butter, 1 1/2 cups of icing sugar, 1/4 cup of cocoa powder. If it is not creamy enough just add a zip of milk. If it´s to fluidly add butter or icing sugar. Whip the cream.
Pour the chocolate cream on the second layer of your cake.
Use 1/3 of your whipped cream and add it on top of the chocolate cream.
Lay the third layer of cake on top of the whipped cream.
Step 4: Layers
Now your cake should look like picture 1.
Cover the whole cake with the rest of the whipped cream and decorate it with the rasberrys that you layed aside at the beginning.
