My mom made this cake for Ryan’s birthday.  It was amazing.  It’s on page 128 in the Cable Family Cookbook.


Raspberry Cake

1 white cake mix

1 ½ c. powdered sugar

½ c. butter

¼ c. sugar

2 T. cornstarch

1 (10-oz.) thawed, drained raspberries

Cool Whip or whipped cream


Bake cake as directed on package in 2 (9-inch) cake pans; cool.

For Cream Filling:

Beat the powdered sugar and butter, adding milk if needed.

For Raspberry Layer:

In a saucepan, cook the sugar, cornstarch, and raspberries.

Thicken and then cool (make sure it gets to be the consistency of pudding or else it will run right off the cake)

Putting the Cake Together:

Spread the cream filling on the top of each cake layer.

Spread the raspberry mixture on top of the cream filling that was spread on the bottom layer of the cake.

Place the top layer on the cake.

Frost with Cool Whip or whipped cream.


Florida Key Lime Pie

I made this a couple weeks ago for a family gathering at my father-in-laws.  Even though everyone except Rick said that they didn’t like key lime pie, I made everyone try it.  I even had my 4 and 5 year old nephews try a piece.  Everyone loved it.  So you should definitely try it!  It’s on page 148 in the Cable Family Cookbook
