Annie made this racetrack cake for Daniel's birthday.First, she baked 4, round 9-inch chocolate cakes. Then she used a cake leveler to make them flat, and cut a slice out of each piece so that they fit closer together.
She thinned out some raspberry jam with water and spread that on the bottom layers. She made a dark chocolate butter cream frosting and spread that on top of the raspberry jam before covering with the top cake layer.
This cake was very good. The dark chocolate butter cream frosting was not too sweet. Everyone at the party devoured their slices.
