Guests will think you fussed when you serve this three-layer torte made with convenient cake and pudding mixes, a bit of jam and fresh raspberries. It looks elegant for most any special occasion and always brings lots of compliments.

My all-time favorite cake recipes include this one. It's easy to make, pretty to look at...and delicious! I never fail to get compliments when I serve Royal Raspberry Cake to family and friends—the sweet/tart taste is a treat.
I developed this torte myself, and it seems that everyone I serve it to enjoys it. This recipe requires relatively few ingredients, is quite easy to make, looks sensational and, most important, tastes great!
The story behind this patchwork birthday dessert is a sweet one. It all started when subscriber Sue Anne Busby of Hermitage, Tennessee shared a cake she'd made special by frosting it with fruit preserves. Inspired by Sue Anne's innovative icing, the CT kitchen crew got cookin'—and whipped together this easy quilt-block confection, complete with jam-filled squares. It's a treat your quilting guests are sure to relish!
