Took of Cakes!

This is a belated birthday cake for my cousin smokey, well, Lauren - hence the L.  I wanted to make a special treat for her not only for her birthday, but also to celebrate the birth of Henry, so I went to the obvious source for all things perfect...Martha Stewart.

This is a 3 layered "Perfect White Cake" filled with a raspberry reduction (fresh raspberries cooked down in water with sugar until thick like a glaze) and "Chocolate Frosting."  The white icing is a basic cream cheese frosting.  It was delicious!
