Very nice! My 8 year old made this all on her own but she used frozen blackberries instead of raspberries. An easy to follow recipe, thank you! - 08 Mar 2015


Not sure where I went wrong, but I have just made this cake, it has come out pale hardly risen and raspberries leaking out of it - that said I have yet to taste it - sadly not one of my successes - 25 Sep 2016
