You're Going to Fool Everyone



Of course, you can make a homemade frosting but I opted in a hurry to use cream cheese frosting.


With added white melted chocolate it put this frosting over the top in flavor and a perfect pairing with the two together.


The cake is rich and moist and bursting with that raspberry flavor and the perfect sweetness.
