It’s a creamy chocolate gem to be enjoyed.

They are small joys that can be enjoyed whenever you wish, while reading a book, while at the computer, and with your friends. They are small chocolates with Bavarian cream filling covered with a sweetened and flavored raspberry gela­tin.

Despite everything, I’m happy with my result; I say that I was home last week because my children had this flu that knocked out most of Pennsylvania for about a week despite the vaccinations. To improve it, I also got sick, and 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 natural disaster. I could hardly make the cream, but the one I did make was pretty good. The raspberry gelatin, which I finally mastered after many attempts because I forgot to solidify the gelatin, was finally done. The short-crust pastry burned because I left it inside the oven, but 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 it, and prepare everything. I took the cake out of the freezer, 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!

A Creamy Chocolate Gem

I knew I shouldn’t have set foot in the kitchen that day. I was 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 of 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 improve and make these gems with you, so here I am!
