    Wow, I made this roll and it was amazing… I have got so much raspberries frozen from my garden that don’t know what to do with them. How I know how to use them up. 🙂 Thanks for this recipe. Bring some more recipes we love them. Thanks for your hard work.

    My ganache was really runny? Is that normal?

    • admin 01/16/2015, 10:35 pm Link Reply

      Yes and No. I didn’t want it “really thick” since there is other chocolate. But it’s not suppose to be too runny. Did you wait until it completely cooled? Also, if you do want it a little thicker, add heavy whipping cream instead of half/half. 🙂

      Thank you dear. Appreciate the sweet comment and the pin :)..

  • Liliya 01/11/2015, 3:51 pm Link Reply

    This looks SOO amazing I cant even take it. Question. I will try making this for a party, will the raspberry puree give the cake a dark color and will it taste the same if I just leave it out?. It will be kind of warm there too so that ganache or choc won’t work but I want to make this so bad. What else can I decorate with?

    • admin 01/14/2015, 1:29 pm Link Reply

      Thank you Liliya,
      The cake will get a little color but not too much. Just leave it out, it won’t make that big of a difference. You can just take raspberries and put them in a straight line on top of the cake. Add some shaved chocolate (a vegetable peeler makes pretty shavings.) Hope you enjoy it. P.S. I’d love to be somewhere warm. It’s absolutely freezing where I am at, kids had 3 snow days in a row due to the weather..

    WoW. WOW. Where can I buy the dulce de leche?

    • admin 01/11/2015, 10:27 am Link Reply

      I’m thinking that is a good wow?:) You can purchase it and most grocery store. I make my own though. Remove paper from condensed milk (it will make a mess if you don’t). Put cans into a saucepan, roasting pan or pot. Completely cover with water. You can either lay them down or stand them up. Bake @375F for 2.5 hours. Simple as that. I do like 6 at a time. Keep refrigerated, will stay good for weeks. 🙂 🙂
