This was a super yummy cake, and cut so nicely!! I couldn't get mine to look as pretty as the pictures but the taste made up for that:) Used raspberries:)

I'm pretty sure it would have been comical to watch me try to put this cake together. I had one layer split in half and then fall, I didn't get enough filling on the bottom layer (and that was the one that fell) so it was short and lopsided, my cat snuck up and put a paw print in the top layer and, of course, I was covered in powdered sugar by the end of everything. Other than my self-imposed misadventures this was great!! Everybody loved it and, all things considered, it was really pretty!! **Edit** I made this for my graduation and ended up making one as written and one lemon blueberry cake as well. Substituted lemon cake mix, lemon pudding, and blueberries. Both went over great! Thanks again!!

The kids and I made this for Mother's day. Everyone loved the taste, it was very easy to make and looked great too! I didn't have any frozen whipped topping so used 1 cup of heavy whipping cream and added some sugar and vanilla. It worked great.

This cake is very easy to make although it does take some planning. I used strawberries in mine and I cut them up to approx. the same size as a raspberry and I let them drain on paper towels for a few minutes. I didn't have any problems with the color bleeding into the filling this way. The flavor is great and DH and I yummed our way through our pieces. What a great cake for a special occasion. Thanks for posting a keeper!

This cake was easy and beautiful. My son and daughter-in-law ask if the cake was real. To attest to the taste, my 21 month old grandaughter ate 3 pieces and kept saying good!, more!

I iwll agree that this cake is really easy to make and has a decent flavor. My problem is the filling....there seems to be more sweetness to it than flavor. Next time I will fiddle with it some. My aunt, who is a baker, suggested maybe some almond extract or lemon zest to help round out the flavor some. On another matter, I think next time instead of mixing the berries into the filling I will simply lay the filling and then the berries for a more attractive appearance. Overall a keeper though.

Sooo good and very impressive looking. I've made the this cake a couple of times and have even made cupcakes with it. The filling is very good as a dip for strawberries also!

Very very good. Used strawberries but I think raspberries would be even better. I had too much filling leftover when I got to the top, so I iced the whole layer.
