So now that I am into baking and frosting everyone asks me to make them a cake for their birthdays. So today is just another birthday cake for my SIL, Alli.



It’s a gluten free chocolate cake with a raspberry cream cheese frosting. I used a box cake (got home late from work and really didn’t want to make it from scratch), but I always tweak my box cakes.

I found this, on Pinterest and used it ever since! You add an extra egg, use milk instead of water, and use melted butter instead of oil and double. The cakes come out a lot more rich and denser!

For the frosting I used:
1 stick butter
1.5 packages cream cheese (we like our frosting more cream cheese flavor)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2.5 cups powdered sugar (the normal recipe calls for 4 cups but like I said we like the cream cheese flavor more)
3 tbsp milk or heavy cream (heavy cream makes it more creamy)
1 cup raspberries folded in

Let’s just say it was a hit with everyone!
