Dark Chocolate – Raspberry Cake


First bake at our new place in Canada and these raspberries were the sweetest i have ever tasted. We are still settling in, the fall is just starting here… It seems like the leaves are just turning colours and there’s pumpkins and apples and everything fall !!! 

The oven is perfect but I couldn’t bring most of my baking gear with 😀 I managed to make the cake look presentable and i am quite happy with how it turned out and i am also finding the perfect spots taking pictures. The flat has a huge glass door/ window so thats cool!  😀

Its a dark chocolate raspberry cake filled with fresh raspberries and frosted with a rich dark chocolate buttercream frosting!
