Try not to eat the whole thing at once.

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of the Devil's Food Cake Cockaigne from The Joy of Cooking. This cake is super-rich and decadent, and the raspberries on top are a perfect balance. It's made with a whipped ganache filling and a bittersweet glaze on top. Everyone needs a good chocolate cake in their repertoire, and this one seems like the perfect recipe. Got a friend with a birthday coming up? This will surely please them.
