I hosted a housewarming "fiesta" last week so it proved to be the perfect occasion to try the chocolate goodness cake. To keep with the "fiesta" theme I used Mexican chocolate and added some cinnamon and cayenne pepper once it was melted. I should have added more because you could barely taste it. The cake turned out smaller than I thought it would. I like higher cakes, so if I did this again I would probably double it to have four layers as opposed to two. I also baked the cake a couple of hours before the party. I actually liked the cake better then next day since the raseberry filling had time to seep into the cake layers. As you can see from the photo, people were not shy in grabbing a piece!

  1. Great idea adding the cinnamon component! I am a big fan of Mexican chocolate though I don't have it often enough. I'm glad it was a hit!
    Great Job!
