I was SO into the idea of this cake, and was really excited at how it might turn out! I really liked the combination of flavors... the raspberry and chocolate with the cheese was great. My only qualm is the consistency I got with the cheese mixture... it was thick and curdy. Just my personal opinion, but I would make it as more of a cheesecake texture... it seemed like it belonged in lasagna, not a cake!

I know, I know ~ This cake is for October & to celebrate Samhain or Halloween or All Hallow's Eve, or.... BUT, any day & anytime can be a time for chocolate, so.....! This cake was great fun putting together, & I included EVERYTHING in the recipe! Great tasting, & the center of attention! One or two couldn't handle it [for whatever the reason], but the rest of us devoured it! Many thanks for sharing!
