Happy Birthday Dad

When my dad asked me to make him a chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting, I knew it had to be extra special. He is the best dad in the world!

I saw this chocolate lace technique on a PBS show. It went well for my first try.
The cake itself is homemade chocolate cake, three layers, filled with chocolate ganache and fresh raspberries. The burst of raspberry flavor with the dark chocolate was amazing.
It is covered in cream cheese frosting and decorated with chocolate dipped strawberries.

It was amazing, both to gaze upon and to taste upon. Thank you so much, Sweetie! Your daddy was so pleased.
