    Delicious! I also used the devil's food cake mix since that is what I had on hand. Easy to make and impressive to serve for guests or for a special meal at home.

    My husband thinks this is the best cake ever. I, too, used the devil's food mix. And I used a chocolate glaze, the three times I have made it

    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.

    Delicious & not too sweet. I used a devil's food cake mix instead of the chocolate.
