Deep Chocolate Raspberry Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
This is a great chocolatey cake but more like a torte. It needs to be eaten in small slices. The only problem I had in the making of it was the chocolate immediately seized as soon as I added the beaten yolks. The next time I made it I tried adding some of the chocolate to the yolks first then adding the yolks to the remaining chocolate and still it seized. I just continued beating it with the remaining items then folded in the egg whites which loosened it up so at least it did become loose enough to spread but it is more of a brownie consistancy than a cake batter consistancy. I put seedless raspberry jam in the center but made a chocolate dam around the edges of the cake to hold it in. I frosted it entirely in a different chocolate frosting (the recipe from the Hersheys Unsweetened Chocolate Cocoa can) I then garnished it with raspberries and chocolate curls.

Easiest, Most Delicious Meringue Buttercream

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2011
I followed these directions to a tee, I am not a novice in the kitchen. I have been beating this frosting mixture for one hour and its still like soup. I think the time for it to "come together" has come and gone. Now I have to try and see if I can salvage this somehow in order to be able to finish a cake order. I should have tried it before hand but the reviews were so positive (mostly) that I threw caution to the wind. I will be pulling an all nighter in order to get my sheet cake out by tomorrow.

Chocolate Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
This is the best coffee cake I have ever made so far. I did have to substitute the butter milk by using 1 cup of sour cream and 1 cup of regular milk but it came out so moist and tasty. It smelled so heavenly too. I took it to a ladies Bible Study and when I walked into the fellowship hall everyone could smell this wonderful cake. Everyone raved about it.
