A Creamy Chocolate Gem

Despite everything I’m happy with my result, I say despite because last week I was home because both my children had this flu that knocked out most of Pennsylvania for about a week despite the vaccinations. To make it better I also got sick and even now I still feel a bit congested.

I had promised myself that I would post a dessert for you guys on Valentine’s Day.

And that promise is a raspberry cake with lemon-flavored Bavarian cream.

And then?

Well, I tried to do it in those days of that bitter week.

It was a disaster, a real disaster, I could hardly make the cream, but the some I did make was pretty good, the raspberry gelatin, I finally mastered after many attempts because I forgot to solidify gelatin, was finally done. The short crust pastry burnt because I forgot it inside the oven, fortunately the glaze did not suffer.

I assembled everything and put it in the freezer. After three hours, I was ready to glaze the cake, perfect, and prepare everything. I got the cake out of the freezer, then removed it from the mold, and placed it on the grill to glaze.

With the appropriate spatula, I removed it from the grill but, then I dropped the cake uuuggghhhh! I wanted to scream!

I knew I shouldn’t of set foot in the kitchen that day, I was so sick, but I wanted to get up and do something!

After that I didn’t even open the door to the kitchen for a good couple days; I closed the door, took a book, and just sprawled myself on the couch.

Luckily, I made extra Bavarian cream before the fiasco, I couldn’t wait to get better and make these gems with you guys and so here I am!
