Naked Chocolate Raspberry Cake

While testing my Chocolate and Vanilla Sour Cream Birthday Cake recipe a month or so ago, I ended up with quite a few chocolate cakes in my freezer.  I'm saving one for my baby's birthday in a few weeks, but these six-inch layers were extras.  Also hiding at the back of the freezer was some leftover raspberry buttercream from the Lemon Raspberry Cake I shared in February.
