Ingredient tip:

  1. If you use frozen raspberries do not thaw (defrost) first, fresh ones need to be thawed.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
