Hello again gang,

My Grandpa loves raspberry jams and fillings and custard, but I don't know what flavor cake it would be best paired up with; what do you think?

He's an avid chocolate cake lover, but I'm not sure how raspberry would go with chocolate since I don't eat raspberries.

Raspberries and chocolate is a classic pairing. Raspberries also go excellently with lemon.

here's some ideas:
Chocolate cake with raspberry preserve (seedless) filling iced in chocolate ganache, chocolate buttercream, fudge, or raspberry buttercream.
Lemon cake, with raspberry preserve (seedless) and lemon curd fillings iced in: lemon buttercrea, raspberry buttercream, Italian Meringue (aka 7-minute frosting), white chocoalte buttercream, white chocolate ganache, or whipped cream.

You can also make raspberry mousse by mixing the preserves with stabilized whipped cream.

Sorry, I didn't realize I clicked on new topic instead of reply.

How much ganache would I need to cover two nine inch layers?

P.S: How do you remove the cake off of the rack after the ganache is poured. I don't have spatulas that big icon_biggrin.gif
