I made this cake as is but exchanged the frosting for a buttercream frosting instead. My husband says that I should have just used the called for frosting because it was just too much with what I made. I was following another reviewer's suggestion. With how I did it, I just wasn't impressed with it. It was alright, but nothing fantastic. Instead of using jam, I reserved the raspberry juice from when it was thawed and added some corn starch and heated it up. The raspberries really made a nice contrast. People just complained that it was too chocolatey. I have to agree. Even just eating the cake (not the frosting) it is very chocolatey and rich. This cake MUST be eaten in very small pieces. I won't make this one again because there are so many recipes out there that are better. If you do make it, use the frosting that is given...don't substitute and be ready for a chocolate overload!
