True Love Cake

This cake was made special for a couple celebrating their anniversary with friends. The cake is vanilla, and it's filled with raspberry jam and chocolate ganache. The frosting is made with freeze-dried raspberries. So, that gorgeous pink comes only from flavorful, natural ingredients. I used the same frosting for my daughter's cake last year


I combed the sides. Here's a very amateur video that I made (upon request...hi, @lisafogt! :) ) showing how I did it. I'm by no means an expert, but I do like the way the sides look when I finish. This is a caramel cake with combed sides if you want to see another example. The top is decorated with all the yum stuff that's inside + a few dragees. 

Here I am looking super proud and happy. 


I hope their anniversary is sweet and filled with lots of love. Here's to many more! 



  1. Beautiful! Are those meringues on the cake top or more frosting?

    1. Hi! Thank you! They are more frosting. I've seen some people put meringues in a similar way on Instagram. It looks gorgeous!
