Chocolate-Berry Wreath Cake



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x2-inch round cake pan or a 9x9x2-inch baking pan. Add 1 tablespoon cocoa powder. Shake and tilt pan to coat bottom and sides; shake out any excess cocoa powder. Set pan aside. In a large bowl stir together flour, sugar, 1/2 cup cocoa powder, espresso powder (if desired), baking soda, and salt; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl combine eggs, the water, oil, vinegar, and vanilla. Gradually add egg mixture to flour mixture, beating with an electric mixer on low speed just until combined. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes, scraping sides of bowl occasionally.
  3. Pour batter into the prepared pan, spreading evenly. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan; cool completely on wire rack.
  4. Frost top and sides of cake with Milk Chocolate Butter Frosting. Arrange berries around outside edge of cake to resemble a wreath. Heat strawberry jelly until melted; brush evenly over berries. Place one or more White Chocolate Bow(s) on berry wreath.
