    We loved this cake!! It did take several hours - so be prepared. It also took a lot more than 20 seconds to whip the chocolate mixture, but it was well worth the wait! I only used two cakes instead of three since it was a small party and everything turned out perfect. I used shaved chocolate instead of nuts as my hubby is allergic to nuts. Will make again and again and again. Thanks!

    I made this cake for Xmas eve and everyone just loved it. I actually halved the cake recipe and made just one box and added one large box of pudding mix (not instant) as I always do to a box cake. I followed the rest of the instructions. I then split the layers of the two cakes so I had 4 layers. I think I could cut the frosting in half and still have enough as well, but the chocolate filling was just the right amount. This is a very tasty cake and pretty easy to make.

    This cake is GREAT!!! I have made it for all three of my kid's baptisms in the Wilton cross pan and it turns out wonderful EVERY TIME.

    I love anything with raspberry and chocolate, so I had to make this cake! I decided to make it for my sisters birthday...she loved it so much and said it was the best cake she ever had! I will definitely be making this cake again.

    I made this cake and was terribly disappointed! Ingredients were rather expensive, but when all was done, it still just tastes like a box cake mix! The only thing really good was the chocolate filling. The icing was also a big disappointment! Will never bother again to make! Very disappointing.

    This is the most amazing cake ever. I made this as a treat for folks at work and after a few of them tasted it ... I took orders for 4 cakes. It does take a while to make and is a bit expensive, but well worth the cost.

    I made this cake three times and it was amazing! I modified the amount of berry juice on the second two. Everyone at each event loved the cake and talk about their first taste of it! That is what baking is all about!

    Baked this for family birthday celebration where we have chocolate every other year. This was the year and it was so totally delicious! It was pretty easy to do, though it does take some time. Really have to work fast with the frosting to keep it going on smooth. I used fresh raspberries, blackberries, and mint leaves for garnish instead of the candy. This is a keeper for special occasions!
