Raspberries and Roses


Even though I'm a big dessert lover, I'm very picky about my sweets. I was that one child at a birthday party who wouldn't eat the cake if it was vanilla. To put it simply, I'm a chocolate girl, and most desserts that don't include chocolate usually aren't up my alley. But, while flipping through a Martha Stewart cookbook, a non-chocolate recipe stood out to me. Called the "Old Fashioned Berry Layer Cake", the dessert not only looked delicious, but was also beautifully presented. I knew I had to try baking it for myself, and I must say the final product was delectable.
