Adapted from Dorie Greenspan's "Baking: From My Home to Yours"
My friend was visiting from Chicago this weekend and agreed to help and keep me company while we made this wonderful cake for March's Baker's Challenge. I was a little worried about the icing, because I prefer a traditional American Buttercream, but I think the Raspberry preserves offset the heavy butter flavor.
(Note: I am still not the best at taking pictures of food, but I'm working on it. We were so excited to try this cake, I didn't spend too much time decorating it.)
