This is awesome!
Absolutely delicious! Very easy to put together and makes a great presentation. Perfect for company. Will definately make again and again. Great for celiacs!
A beautiful, delicious cake! I use to visit a fabulous tea room in Oklahoma called Raspberries 'n' Creme. This cake tasted similar to a chocolate cake I had there for my birthday. This is an excellent cake for entertaining as you can prepare the cake and raspberry coulis the day before and put together right before serving time. I sometimes omit making the raspberry coulis and buy premade raspberry sauce. You get the same delightful flavor. I use this cake as an excuse to have a dinner party! If you want to see a photo you can visit www.godiva.com and see a picture. Thanks DiScharf for sharing... I was here to post it!
