Raspberry Jam Cakes

These Raspberry Jam Cakes are topped with fluffy vanilla whipped cream and purple sugar. They are easy to make, look fancy, and taste delicious. I made these cute cakes for teacher’s appreciation week, because I show love and gratitude thru cake. I was very happy when I got an email from my son’s preschool teachers that they loved the cakes. And what’s not to love? These Raspberry Jam Cakes are truly amazing, light and fluffy, with a sweet raspberry jam filling, sandwiched between pink vanilla cakes.

The cakes are also very easy to make. All you need, is just a half sheet cake pan, and some patience to cut and assemble the mini cakes. The whipped cream frosting is a breeze to whip, in just a few minutes. The cakes are not too sweet, made with ricotta, that gives them a nice, rich texture. I added some pink get food color to make it more fun and give them a bolder appearance.
