MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 16, 2012

I make this cake all the time and have been for years. I always sub out the chocolate cake for white or yellow (since my husband doesn't like chocolate. I also sub out the raspberries for strawberries. This is the most requested cake I make! Although my daughter and I have made flavor changes we still call it Chocolate Raspberry Torte. We get a lot of strange looks but no one turns down a piece. lol

I have made this cake several times. It is easy and delicious. My best friend request it for her birthday every year and I have auctioned off this cake for my son's Boy Scout Troop and the bids were crazy. The people who didn't win begged for me to make one for next year's auction. (All proceeds went to the Boy Scouts Troop.)
