Scrumptious white-ish cake, glorious raspberries, delicious icing…happy birthday to me!  This was one of two cakes that I made for myself (and shared!)  Loved it.  My mom, Marco, and Andy agree.  Others wouldn’t try it because well, I made a ridiculous ice cream cake that called to them instead and I guess hard to have both (although I did!)  There is not much more to say about this – save to tell you to make it!  It is a sturdy cake and easy to handle and the filling simple.  The buttercream is a bit more work, but worth it.  Andy, who used to be a chocolate lover declared that he no longer likes chocolate cake.  BTW, I froze half of the cake and it defrosted perfectly.  Enjoy –

Rob tells me it’s not great when I just send you to another webpage…but I’m going to do it today.  The instructions are as easy to follow as my own and I can move on to the other cake I made for my birthday!  I did not use their icing…I found a great icing from Alice Medrich which I will also share soon.  And lower on this page will be the raspberry filling.
