1/2 tsp baking powder

350F, Prep Time: 30 mins, Bake Time: 30 mins, Serves >10.
Eyes – dark chocolate goji raspberry
Beard – blueberry whipped cream (good, but can be better! :: bowl & beaters refrigerated for 15 mins. 1/2 cup heavy cream beat until stiff peaks, 1/2 cup blueberries chopped in blender, fold in blueberries and 2 tbsp honey::)
Mouth – halved raspberries
I was afraid the blueberry whipped cream wouldn’t be that great (from past experience). Tried to pipe rosettes using a star tip in a ziplock bag, but failed. Thus, I spread the cream on only half the cake. Thankfully, this time the cream complimented the cake well, despite tasting mediocre. It’s the thought that counts though, right? 😉
