Chocolate chiffon with raspberry butter cream and soft chocolate ganache

 Even the Valentine's day already passed, I still feel the love in the air. ^^ 

You don't need any occasion to say "I love you" and I think you can give someone you love cute and delicious dessert everyday. With some twist, you can change simple chocolate chiffon cake into something special. By cutting the cake into heart shape, fill it with (very easy) raspberry butter cream and cover with soft ganache that melt in your mouth you get cake that you will be happy to see and serve.
All the elements of this cake are easy, and you can prepare them ahead of time, then assemble it the day you're ready to serve.  Actually you can cut it into other shape or even make roll cake then cover with ganache, just trust your imagination, hehe.
Dark chocolate ganache, and slightly tangy taste from the raspberry buttercream, this cake is very addictive, well try it and you will agree with me.
