1
box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® chocolate fudge cake mix, baked into 2 (9-inch) round cakes as directed on box, cooled completely
1 1/2
cups whipping cream
1
pint (2 cups) fresh raspberries
1/2
cup powdered sugar
Chocolate Ganache
1
cup whipping cream
2
cups high-quality dark chocolate chips or broken chocolate pieces
  1. With sharp knife, carefully slice off rounded top of 1 cooled, baked cake layer, creating a flat surface. Gently transfer cake layer to plate.

  3. Using metal spatula, spread raspberry-cream mixture on top of cake layer on plate, spreading to edge. Top gently with second cake layer. Run spatula around edge of cake to smooth cream layer.
  4. In medium microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate ganache ingredients on High 1 minute; stir until creamy. If chocolate is not completely melted, microwave 30 to 60 seconds longer. Spoon ganache over top of cake, allowing some to run down side.
  5. Place 1 raspberry in center of cake. Allow ganache to harden at room temperature before serving. If not serving for more than 30 minutes, cover cake gently and store in refrigerator until ready to serve.

Variation
Try switching out the flavor of this cake! Instead of raspberries, stir in fresh strawberries, banana slices, or even rainbow candy sprinkles for a fun twist!
Variation
Lighten the flavor of the chocolate ganache by switching out half of the dark chocolate for milk chocolate. It will lend a bit of extra sweetness!
