I need to WOW the office. I'm making a chocolate cake for 2 coworkers birthday's. I'm looking at chocolate decorators buttercream and darn good chocolate cake, both on the CC recipes favorites.
I'm wondering if I can make chocolate cake layers and have one side of the cake with chocolate butter cream and the other side with a raspberry filling. Then all iced in chocoate buttercream. Anyone tried this?
Also, one guy and one girl so I can't do anything overly girly for the decorating.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions. Love you guys!!! I've learned soooo much here.
The hershey chocolate cake recipe here is very good.Almost like a dark cocolate fudgey brownie.The batter is deceiving though as it is very runny but bakes up nice in the end.I also like the recipe for WBH chocolate BC ..It is a light brown whipped bakery icing.
You can absolutely do different sides of filling. Just pipe out a buttercream wall and they shouldn't run together, sounds really tasty actually
Just don't forget which side is which after you've decorated it.
Thanks so much for the help. I'm going to do a chocolate buttercream with raspberry preserves for the filling, chocolate buttercream outside then drizzle ganache over the top. Still deciding how to decorate.
