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.
I love raspberry mousse!! It's so delicious! I'm gonna have to make some now. Hehe.
Panhead has additional info here:
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
