Chocolate Raspberry + Lemon Prosecco Cakes

I found a cake recipe that I can improvise with! No fucking way! The traditional genoise sponge cake recipe only requires a minimum of three ingredients (eggs, flour, sugar), but once you get the technique down it's smooth sailing from there.

Here, I've made two cakes for Hai and Mark's birthday party. One a chocolate raspberry cake and the other a lemon prosecco cake. The chocolate raspberry is made with chocolate genoise soaked in maraschino liqueur, layered with raspberry preserves and slathered with whipped chocolate ganache.

The lemon prosecco cake is a traditional genoise soaked in prosecco layered with rich lemon curd and wrapped in lemon buttercream.

Good times for all!
