Hello everyone:

I am making a red velvet cake for a haunted mansion cake. The house will be made out of dark chocolate (hopefully with raspberry flavoring). I am either leaving the cake just butter cream or covering it with modeling chocolate. What kind of filling should I use in the cake? Your suggestions will be helpful

Not sure I understande you ? I guess you are putting a choco house on top of a red v elvet cake?
I suggest one of the following:
Choco mousse OR raspberry OR cream cheese mousse OR bavarian cream.

Cakeeatier, Toba Garrett has the best cream cheese filling recipe in her book The Well Decorated Cake that I have ever tasted.

We just tried a cream cheese recipe tonight with red velvet mini cupcakes.

1. Cream 8 oz cream cheese with 1/2 stick butter.
2. Add 1 tsp vanilla extract.
3. Slowly add 1 1/2 cups confectioner's sugar in 1/2 cup increments.

I agree use cream cheese filling with the red velvet cake. I usually add pecan to the filling for mine.
