- If you use frozen raspberries do not thaw (defrost) first, fresh ones need to be thawed.
- The heavy cream for the Chocolate Raspberry Cream Cheese Frosting is to be used only if extra needed. otherwise, I bet there are a lot many extra fat-full dairy products.
- The garnish with some fresh raspberries and shaved chocolate can be done every time served so the topping is fresh enough to rule over the refrigerator savory, just s you want to save some extra cake for afterward.
