  • instead of raspberry you also can take strawberries or any other kind of berries you like
  • instead of using cherry brandy in the chocolate mousse you could use raspberry brandy in the jelly, or even rum
  • an other nice decoration idea fill the raspberries with some liquid chocolate with some rose water, take some chocolate pieces and put them on some whipped cream on top of the cake.
  • and instead of a white dough, make a brown one. Use one big tbsp of chocolate powder and instead of frozen raspberry use chocolate drops.
