Last Friday I made a birthday cake for G. He always requests raspberry cake ~ my own recipe that I have never been particularly fond of. So this year, I decided to liven it up by giving it a lemon-rasberry twist. It has now won a place in my keeper file.
It's not from scratch, I took some short cuts.
Lemon cake box mix
raspberries stirred in
Raspberry jam between the layers and vanilla frosting tinted a soft pastel yellow instead of lemon (to add sweetness instead of more tartness).
There's one piece left. Maybe he'll share.
