"I made this for my daughter in law and son in law's birthdays. We all loved it. I could not find the sweetened raspberries, so I used sweetened strawberries, it was great. I also used a double chocolate cake mix. I will definitely be making this again."

"I have made this twice. The second time I used double rich cake mix and drizzled a chocolate glaze in each of the ridges of the cake and served with redi whip and ice cream. Both ways turned out great."
