Chocolate Cake and Raspberry Filling = YUM!

Ready for some "ooooh's" & "ahhhh's"? This cake is delicious and super easy to make. Just a few homemade touches made this cake extra special. I baked two devil's food cakes (from the box), giving me four cake layers. Then, I made delicious raspberry filling to put between the layers.

Here's the recipe that I used for the filling:

1 1/2 cups frozen raspberries
1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar

In a saucepan, combine all ingredients and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Use a wire sieve to remove the raspberry seeds. Once the filling has cooled completely, spread on to cake.

Use any leftover filling to top ice cream . . . or waffles in the morning. Yum!

I topped the cake with chocolate frosting and sprinkles.

The cake was so yummy looking that I used it as a centerpiece for our dining table.

This cake was so delicious, I could have eaten the whole thing myself. What's your favorite kind of cake? Do your prefer cupcakes? Or would you give up cake altogether for a delicious slice of pie?
