Chocolate Birthday Cake
Another birthday cake for one of my son's friends. This time the request was for a chocolate sheet cake with chocolate layers and icing. For the filling I used Raspberry Buttercream. To make Raspberry Buttercream I strained a jar of good quality raspberry jam to get out all the seeds and then mixed it with regular (not chocolate) buttercream.
This cake is very rich, with about 2 1/2 pounds of butter and about 8 oz. of semi-sweet chocolate in it. And very yummy too.....
