Dark Chocolate Espresso layer cake with Raspberry Chia coulis and Chocolate Swiss Meriunge Buttercream

I had the pleasure of making this gorgeous cake last weekend, it was for a 70th birthday and retirement celebration. I figured it deserved a 4 tier cake with a 12 word title, agree? Oh also, the cake was gluten free, not that anybody could tell tho, it was too good apparently!  

All these photos were taken by my incredibly talented friend Michael Schultz, you can see more of his work here.
