Raspberry Cream Cake -- Perfect for Valentine's Day

Dear Red Couch Recipes Readers.  How have you been?  I hope this post finds you well, and rested after the holiday season.  I took a break from blogging, as I seem to do often, after the Christmas break/  I really enjoyed Christmas this year, and I had a hard time letting it go, but I am beginning to get the itch to do some cooking and baking in the Red Couch Kitchen
As I was shopping after the holidays, I came across these pans.  Somehow they flew in my cart, and I knew that I will be using them a lot this year in the Red Couch Kitchen.  They retailed for $6.99 at T.J. Maxx.  I loved it that they were shallow and had a curvy edge; they are the Good Cooks brand.

I hope you will make a cake like it.  It is just a very simple cake, that has such a sweet, wholesome taste.  It whips up in minutes, and can be decorated in so many different ways. 

Raspberry Cream Cake Recipe
1 white box mix, or two depending on the size of your pans.  Made according to the directions on the box.  See note below
2 cups whipping cream
3/4 cup raspberry jam 
Make and bake cake mix according to directions.  Turn out on cooling rake, and level while in pans.  Let cool.  Whip cream and add raspberry jam at the end of whipping.  Spread on each layer and on the top.  Decorate as you please.  Next time, I think I will add fresh raspberries

Note:  I used one cake mix box for the pans I used.  If you are using regular 8 x 8 pans, you will need to use two cake mix boxes and increase the whipping cream and raspberry jam. 
Thank you for dropping by Red Couch Recipes.
