Ingredients

3/4 cup butter, softened

2 cups sugar

3 large eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup baking cocoa

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1-1/2 cups 2% milk

CHOCOLATE FROSTING:

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup butter, cubed

1 cup sour cream

4-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar

RASPBERRY FILLING:

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

1/4 cup red raspberry preserves

1-1/2 teaspoons sugar

1 teaspoon raspberry liqueur

CHOCOLATE DRIZZLE:

1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1 tablespoon butter

1/4 cup heavy whipping cream

Chocolate curls and fresh raspberries

Directions

Line three 9-in. round baking pans with waxed paper; grease and flour the pans and paper. Set aside.

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt and baking powder; add to the creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition.

Transfer to prepared pans. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.

For frosting, in a small heavy saucepan, melt chips and butter over low heat. Transfer to a large bowl; cool for 5 minutes. Stir in sour cream. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar until smooth.

For filling, in a small bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add the preserves, sugar and liqueur; beat until stiff peaks form.

Cut each cake horizontally into two layers. Place bottom layer on a serving plate; spread with 1/2 cup filling. Top with another cake layer and spread with 1/2 cup frosting. Repeat layers. Top with another cake layer, 1/2 cup filling and remaining cake layer. Spread remaining frosting over top and sides of cake.

For drizzle, place chips and butter in a small bowl. In a small saucepan, bring cream just to a boil. Pour over chocolate; whisk until smooth. Place mixture in a heavy-duty resealable plastic bag; cut a small hole in a corner of bag. Pipe over a design of your choice and drizzle chocolate around the sides, decorate with chocolate curls and fresh raspberries and even strawberries if you please.
