Dessert Anyone?

IHeartFaces theme this week is "I Heart Dessert" and during my spring break I took pictures of the AWESOME chocolate cake with raspberry filling that I made for my family.

It's hard to do a lot of baking here at college, so I do what I can when I'm home. And it's awesome. And it just makes me want to bake more while I'm away.

Anyway, this cake was made from a box because I haven't branched out and started making things from scratch. It's Betty Crocker I believe - of the chocolate variety.

I mixed the batter and distributed it evenly in two 8" circular baking pans. Then I cut the top off the bottom layer to make it flat and spread raspberry jam across the surface. I placed the top layer over the jam and covered the whole thing with cream cheese frosting.

Then I added sprinkles on top for a little 'flair' :)

    But go ahead and branch out. To be honest, using a box (which is fine - I do it as well at times) only saves you a couple of minutes usually. They just already mixed up the flour, sugar, baking soda/powder, etc. for you.

  7. Yum! That looks amazing!
