    Harried Mom's Note:

    This recipe is the combination of my Aunt Eileen's cake, my friend Kris' creme filling and Southern Living's Raspberry sauce. Combined it has become an incredibly decadent dessert. I make it for DH's b-day and other very special occasions. It's alot of effort but well worth it!
