National Raspberry Cake Day is today! Raspberries are among the top fruits you should eat and include many health benefits such as: rich source of anti-oxidants, low in calories, and a great source of vitamins A, B Complex, C, E and K. This is the best time of year to pick fresh raspberries so I suggest going to a farm or your local farmers market for the best selection. This year I decided to make my husband a milk chocolate cake, with vanilla butter cream frosting, a fudgy ganache and a raspberry glaze and it was so delicious! I make my cakes and frosting’s from scratch with no measurements so you’ll have to come back and watch for those blogs to go up! You can serve this raspberry glaze with a large varieties of cakes. Chocolate and raspberry and chocolate and orange are two of my favorite flavor combinations, so this is why I opted for chocolate cake.
Although this is a time consuming process each element is really worth it! Chocolate and raspberry is one of my favorite taste combinations, what kind of cake will you try this year for National Raspberry Cake Day?
