Chocolate and Raspberry

Last month for Cara's birthday I baked her a chocolate cake with a raspberry filling. I used the same recipe I used before for Nathan's birthday cake, but while I made the ganache frosting, I didn't use it for the filling. Instead, I thawed, pureed, and strained two bags of frozen raspberries, stirred in sugar and cornstarch, and boiled the mixture until it thickened a bit. I used that for the filling, and kept the extra to drizzle over individual slices.

And now, thanks to Cara and Facebook, I have pictures!
