My friend Ricardo is always a riot. I must admit I really look forward to seeing him because I know it is going to be a fun time. Helen (another amazing friend, who I am sure will have her own blog post in the future) asked me to bake him a cake for his birthday. She asked for a chocolate cake with raspberry filling and vanilla buttercream. Also, with some type of a poker theme. So this is what I came up with. It was really fun to make and I thought it came out well.
Happy Birthday, Ricardo!!
