Chocolate and Raspberry Opera Cake

My friend Martha left Dublin recently to start a new job, she was the one who convinced me to start the blog and came up with the name, so it was only right that I make her a cake! I recently got the Great British Bake Off book and decided on the recipe for the Chocolate and Raspberry Opera Cake.

The cake itself was a lot of work! Four layers of chocolate sponge, a raspberry syrup, a french buttercream, a chocolate ganache AND a chocolate glaze. But it was completely worth it!

The cake was really tasty and looked pretty impressive, the layers and all the different fillings certainly added a touch of decadence! The whole raspberries in the buttercream were a really nice touch too!

There’s a similar recipe up on the BBC Food website!
