Chocolate Raspberry Layer Cake

Chocolate Raspberry Layer Cake

I made this pretty Chocolate Raspberry Layer Cake for my friend Susie. She’s my Bunco buddy. Actually, a little bird (named Mary) told me that Susie loved Chocolate Raspberry Layer Cake, so that’s what I made. We celebrated her birthday at our Bunco game on Thursday. Have you ever played Bunco? It’s a fun dice game that is super simple to play. It’s mainly just a great way to get together with the gals! We get together once a month to play and it’s always a hoot! Gotta have some good girl time at least once a month, right!
