Notes

Lemon Butter Cake with Raspberry preserve in between the layers and a raspberry buttercream frosting.

Originally an experiment for my mother's birthday present, then a valentines day cake.

Twas a tasty cake. Be warned, is extremely buttery. But thats what makes it makes delicious right? Just don't make it on a weekly basis...It's a cake for a once (or twice) in a year occasion.
