“This is the cake I always made for my youngest daughter's birthday when she was growing up. I used to frost it with white fluffy frosting, sprinkle it with shredded coconut and decorate it with a big red ribbon, like a Fluffy White Christmas Wreath, as she had a Christmas birthday. I lost my copy of the recipe and have been looking for it for years and was delighted to finally find it. I am posting it here so I never lose it again! It is a delicious cake with a lovely raspberry filling.”
