Birthday Cake


Raspberry Blackout Cake w. Ganache-Y Frosting

If you happen to be celebrating a birthday in our family this is most likely the cake I would make for you*.  Who doesn’t like chocolate and raspberry together? Crazy people I suppose. I’ll admit that I usually don’t like raspberries at all but when mixed with chocolate cake you can’t go wrong.  My sister was the lucky recipient of this cake even though a day before her party she requested a Crepe Cake which wasn’t going to happen on such short notice with 2 kids in the house. The recipe is from Vegan with a Vengeance. You really can’t go wrong with any of Isa’s recipes.


When I was done smoothing out the frosting I had a bit left over and added some star details with a piping bag and tip. The detail and some fresh raspberries, which I picked off (!), made for a beautiful birthday cake!

*On occasion I’ve been known to make a coconut cake for birthdays also.

    That looks beautiful and amazing! Chocolate-raspberry is my go-to birthday cake. I’m not usually a fan of chocolate, but something about chocolate + raspberry = YES, PLEASE!
