    Natural-Food-Mommy's Note:

    I baked this cake a few years ago for my boyfriend's birthday. It turned out quite well. The raspberry Chambourd was a very nice flavor addition to the cake. I came across this recipe when watching Tyler Florence on the Food Network. You can experiment with different types of chocolate if you want. I used milk chocolate for the icing.
