TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling YIELD:16 servings


  • 1-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 3 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 jar (12 ounces) raspberry preserves


  • 1. In a small bowl, beat cream until stiff peaks form; set aside. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla until thick and lemon-colored. Combine flour, walnuts, baking powder and salt; fold into egg mixture alternately with whipped cream.
  • 2. Pour into two greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  • 3. In a small bowl, beat cream until stiff peaks form; set aside. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and salt until fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Fold in whipped cream.
  • 4. Cut each cake horizontally into two layers. Place bottom layer on serving plate; spread with about 1/2 cup frosting. Top with second cake layer; spread with half of the raspberry preserves. Repeat layers. Frost sides of cake with frosting.
  • 5. Cut a small hole in the corner of a pastry or plastic bag; insert ribbon tip #47. Fill bag with remaining frosting; pipe a lattice design on top of cake. Using star tip #32, pipe stars around top and bottom edges of cake. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 16 servings.
Editor's Note: Use of a coupler ring will allow you to easily change pastry tips for different designs.

"I've made this twice now; the first time was by the book, the second time (just yesterday) I substituted a box of white cake mix for the cake portion, and it turned out just fine! It is such a yummy combination of creamcheese and whip cream and raspberry and walnuts, oh YUMMY!! It presents so beautifully, everyone thinks I bought it from the local bakery. Try it, you will LOVE it!!"
