When was the last time you ate a bleeding heart?
I just did. No big deal. And it was SO GOOD.
First off, it is a dessert. A seriously divine dessert. A small heart-shaped cake, to be exact.
This cake relies on the classic flavor combination of raspberry and chocolate, made from two heart-shaped layers of chocolate cake filled with raspberry sauce and covered with a thin layer of tender chocolate ganache. The chocolate cake was moist with a perfect crumb. The raspberry sauce is made in-house from locally grown Barbie’s Berries.
While I often have Game of Thones daydreams, this one was particularly vivid. Was I in the office or was I eating this succulent treat from my bare hands on a raised dais in front of my people while raspberry sauce ran down my chin? Nope, just eating this at my desk while critiquing a group project. Phew. Anyway, we can’t all be Daenerys and I really don’t want to live in Westeros. Yikes.
Little known fact: cake makes critiques better.
Share this with your sweetie, your bestie, or just keep it to for your self. This Bleeding Heart is a love bomb.
