This is the wedding cake for Alexa and Peter on August 27, 2005 at the Orinda Country Club in Orinda, CA

This is a new recipe that I used for the first time from Margaret Braun called chocolate blackout cake. The cake layers are brushed lightly with framboise, then a thin layer of raspberry preserves with a final thick layer of raspberry mousse filling punctured by fresh, whole raspberries. The frosting is raspberry italian meringue buttercream with fresh flowers for decoration.

Special thanks to Blake, as A L W A Y S !
