Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Cake with Edible Gold Leaf 

I recently made this chocolate raspberry truffle cake with edible gold leaf for my father-in-law’s wedding, and it was such a hit that I had to blog about it! This decadent cake tastes like a dense, creamy chocolate truffle with tartly sweet raspberries. And chocolate lovers will rejoice, because this is a flourless chocolate cake that’s then topped with chocolate ganache—double chocolate! Whipped cream accompanies each slice and provides a lighter note (yes, it’s that dense) to this luxurious cake.

Corey and I moved to Chicago from our native Florida last August. The adventurer in me loves the city—the restaurants and markets, the theatre, the art and culture—one could spend a lifetime here and never run out of places to explore! But there are times when I long for home and know part of my heart still resides in another state.

This has been especially true of late, as some family and friends have been going through rough times. Phone calls help bridge the distance, but nothing truly compares to being there in person. I’m going to Florida in less than a week, and I’m looking forward to it! I wish Corey could come along, but law school is demanding. In the meantime, I wanted to provide a tres leches cake recipe that I have fond memories of. May it bring joy to your day!
