“This is an adaption of a recipe, found in a woman's magazine. We have been making this cake for years for birthdays and other important events. It is a torte with sour cream and cream cheese filling, topped with whipped cream and raspberries. The combination of cream cheese, whipped cream and raspberries is awesome!”
