With the nation celebrating the birth of our new princess Charlotte, I have a yummy “It’s a Girl!” themed raspberry and white chocolate cake recipe to share in case any of you are welcoming girls into your families at this time too. These cakes would work well for a baby girl’s baby shower, gender reveal party (if you go in for that!), or for girl’s birthday parties.

  3. Fold through the raspberries and grated white chocolate.
