Christmas dessert: Double layered chocolate raspberry cake

Frambozentaart voor kerst |

I’m completely into the christmas mood. Which is on the way too early side or not? (who’s counting anyway!) It’s weird how that works anyway, cause last year christmas just sort of came and went without too much of anything happening. I don’t know why but I almost forgot to decorate the house and did it just shortly before Christmas. Maybe it is because this week we have a Christmas shoot planned with a friend. It’s not for work so pure fun and I am so looking forward to it! And it’s always a guaranteed way to get into the christmas spirit. I might even put on my favorite Christmas music! (don’t tell anyone…)

On top of that I had to come up with a recipe for a last minute christmas shoot for a customer and I made this raspberry double layered cake. How good does that look?
