I found this recipe in the bonus book from Simple and Delicious Magazine. This raspberry-filled cake is an especially lovely ending for a holiday feast. Don't be intimidated by the list of ingredients. It takes some time, but this show-stopping dessert is really quite simple, is what the add says!!! I haven't made this yet, but sounds so delish and looks so elegant.
