My Mom's Birthday Cake!

My Mom requested a chocolate raspberry cake for her birthday, so, of course I had to go with the raspberry blackout cake from VWAV. This lush and decadent dessert has four layers of cake with chocolate mousse, ganache, fresh raspberries and was wrapped in a chocolate band. This is one of the best tasting cakes I have ever made! It was rich and delicious!

To make the chocolate band, I followed directions similar to this; except I used a cake comb and a mixture of white & dark chocolate to get the striped sides.

I made modeling chocolate and molded the chocolate roses by hand. I also topped the cake with fresh raspberries and piped ganache.

This cake turned out awesome!!!

I was really impressed with everything, but what really, really impressed me was how you made your own modeling chocolate, and made the flowers out of them. Simply Amazing!!!

Good job! :)
