Chocolate Cake with Fresh Raspberry Buttercream, Chocolate Ganache and Raspberry Macarons


This has got to be my favourite cake that I made this year so far! I love everything about it, the colour, the chocolate drizzle and macarons, it just puts a big smile on my face :)

Been mad about macarons this year! So I decided to decorated the cake with these pastel blue macarons filled with the left over raspberry buttercream.

With four layers of chocolate sponge, filled and covered with fresh raspberry buttercream and it's the chocolate ganache drizzle which gives the cake that wow factor!

I always look forward to cutting the first slice as I get excited to see how the the layers look.

The cake screams EAT ME!

    1. Thank you Jenna! Yes made the macarons too but still trying to get them to be perfect, not every batch turns out okay. Sometimes they turn out hollow! xx
