Spice Cake with Raspberry Filling and Cream Cheese Frosting
full spoonfull spoonfull spoonempty spoonempty spoon

"The tartness of the raspberries cut through the sweet of the icing and cake producing a complex and delightful cake. I deducted 2 spoons on the rating because the directions are poor and the pictured cake was clearly not made following the directions given. When I assembled the cake the raspberries literally held the second layer up, too high to just ice over. I considered removing the berries and stiring them into frosting to reduce lumps, but I was concerned they would maserate and create a gooey mess. I finally just iced the 2 layers separately and stacked with a gap showing. It was odd, but it worked. The second complaint I had was the berries on top of the cake in the picture were not processed with the jelly as described. So I say make the cake, the flavors are delightful, but toss their directions and wing it. "
