This was my first attempt to a stacked cake.... it was not as easy as it looks on shows and pictures! The cake is coffee with raspberry whipped cream and whipped chocolate ganache. I was given literally a days notice to make this cake....ummm ...why I took this challenge is beyond my thinking at this point. I baked the cakes on Thursday and then on Friday I started at 9am and got finished at 3.30pm! I seriously think I am going to stick to cupcakes, unless given at least a few days notice. Oh, the icing outside is cream cheese (i found a recipe that crusts so that i was able to give it a somewhat smooth look, although if I had a day to do that it would have turned out smoother.
