My Double Chocolate Valentine is now a Double Chocolate Christmas Ornament. I thought this cake would be perfect for Christmas. It is the first time I made this recipe.  I had a little trouble when I inverted the cake and peeled the plastic from the top/bottom. Some of the cake went with it. But, we are a relaxed crowd so I am sure nobody will care or even notice. 

Once again, thanks Rose!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Flour Girl that is one beautiful cake!  I can’t even see the issue you talked about. 

Merry Christmas to you, too, and too all who celebrate that holiday!

Thank you Julie.

The issue is on the bottom. I’m sure everyone will love it anyway.  I can’t wait to try it.

Merry Christmas to you and your family too.

Mmmmmm, FG, that looks wonderful!!!!!

Great job hiding the problem (i.e., letting the cake “sit on it”).

Have a fabulous Christmas!!!

Beautiful! If you haven’t served it yet, a sprig of something green on the top will had to the festiveness. Should i make this for Valentine’s Day? I’m stuck in a Red Velvet rut.

Thank you BakerJD.  The cake was delicious and very tender. Everyone thought it was beautiful. Definitely a great Valentine’s Day cake. The Red Velvet is good too. Do you have a heart pan?

Just wanted to add that I made Rose’s Savory Cheese Dollars from Rose’s Christmas Cookie book. I would post a picture but there are none left. They were the first thing I made from that book and I can tell you they will be a regular in my house from now on. They have a cheesy cracker-like taste. The crumb was just like it was bought from a bakery. Everyone loved them. I served them with all sorts of cheeses and a cheese log.

oooh I want to make this next! Did you use a 9-inch pan?  I bought a few tubs of fresh raspberries that are now in the freezer and I wonder if I can still use them to top the cake.  I’ve had experience with frozen raspberries getting too runny after thawing.

FlourGirl, they sound delicious! This book is still on my wish list (Santa did come through, but with other books on my list smile )

It might be. My guests actually commented on how nice the raspberries were and where did I get them.

Yes, I used a 9 x 2 pan. 

This cake didn’t have too long of a shelf life for me.  I made it Saturday and this morning the berries were beginning to mold. I had to throw what was left away.  I stored it in a glass dome cake keeper.  It probably should have gone in the refrig. I do have to mention my house is very warm.
