Raspberry Truffle
So, you think you know what sin is? Right? You know NOTHING!!! But you are just about to learn. And if you are vegetarian, vegan, on diet - don't even bother reading. RASPBERRY TRUFFLE CAKE

1. We will need to bake a basic chocolate sponge cake - you can use the packaged cake mix if you have to :) or follow the below instructions:

60 grams semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter - melt with chocolate then add
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups sugar
1 and 1/4 cup buttermilk
3 eggs
1 package of vanilla sugar

mix well and add 2 cups of flour

Pour the butter into slightly greased baking pans / molds and bake in a pre-heated to 180 C oven for 35 min.

2. Raspberries - fresh or frozen - 3 cups

3. Chocolate glaze

1 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup butter
350 grams semi-sweet chocolate chips

Put all the ingredients in a bowl and warm up in the microwave till chocolate melts, mix well and let cool.

I will try to do a video or step by step tutorial on the butterflies and chocolate decorations, it is pretty easy

I'm making the cake for my niece's fairy-themed birthday party at the end of the month and I've been searching for inspiration for decoration. Those butterflies are just the thing!

The thick layer of chocolate glaze is a great idea to keep the sponge from getting sogy when the raspberries defrost. Looks delicious!

with a thick layer of chocolate glaze even Royal Icing butter flies would work.
