Raspberry Chocolate Mousse Cake
A chocolate mousse cake with a burst of raspberry filling gives this cake a unique chocolaty fruity flavor. It tastes even better when the flavors blend for a day or two. This is a rich and delicious cake and chocolate lovers will love this cake. For the filling I have used instant chocolate pudding and raspberry cake filling.
