looking to make something for valentine's day that feels extravagant.
(a first for me. i mean even making anything,
having anyone to make it for, you get it, i want it to be really nice.)
have a bunch of chocolate frosting already...
another recipe gone not quite right i attempted to fix w/ volume...
and i'm nothing if not a frugal lady. so need to use. anyway...
i found a recipe for a layered cake w/ strawberry cake & red velvet cake layers,
but it's topped w/ a buttercream frosting.
and everything i can find on red velvet cake says do not use chocolate frosting.
so what i came up with today:
layers of vanilla cake and strawberry cake.
raspberry jam between. topped w/ the chocolate frosttng.
too much? just enough? really weird?
i don't really have the time to make a trial cake.
does this seem like it might be tasty?
thank you thank you for any advice...
especially about the raspberry jam between the layers...
a recipe? is it okay to buy a jar of jam and use that?
