The supermarket was full of marvellous looking raspberries so we decided to make our own version of this bad-boy…
Shell was on the more complex sponge base job…
Before crushing the bright red raspberries and adding to the mixture….
So we turned our attentions to the main event - the icing! Being very sweet-toothed and feeling creative, we decided to make two different versions: chocolate buttercream icing for the top with a raspberry buttercream centre!
|Let's not think about the amount of butter used...|
|Don't you just want to swim in it!? (No?! Just me then...)|
Cheery decoration designed
Chocolate butter icing and decoration was added...
Arrrgh!! All our hard work and the deliciousness…(I know because at this stage I’d eaten multiple spoonfuls of sponge and icing!)Now what would you do?!
Well, I believe in the 3 second rule…however when you’re paralysed and unsure whether to laugh or cry, I also think an extension to this rule is allowed!! (plus we had literally just cleaned the floor due to the copious crumbs)
So we scraped the lid off the floor, discarding anything that had actually been on the floor and reassembled this…a frankenstein-style cake but with plenty of icing you’d never know!!
Check out that beauty!!
Well, until you cut it and can see the large gaps of missing sponge…
But it still tasted heavenly and the raspberries gave a yummy fruity freshness to the richness of the chocolate(s)!
