Gratuitous dessert photos: Espresso chocolate cake with raspberry mousse

Here’s a Valentine’s Day cake I made for Andrew… and immediately realized that it would be less dangerous if we shared it amongst a number of people. Fortuitously, his aunt and uncle were in town this weekend, so six of us made a good sized dent in it (and in this next pic you can see the raspberry mousse filling):

Thanks to CafĂ© Coco Creations’ blog for the basic recipe and idea; the icing is from Julia Child’s reine de saba, which is a DeVoto family classic. Andrew’s mom added fresh raspberries in the shape of a heart.
