Lemon Raspberry Cake

inside1This cake is a four layer light and springy lemon cake, filled with seedless raspberry filling, frosted with a delicious lemon cream cheese frosting, and topped with a tangy lemon curd and fresh raspberries! I made this cake for my husband, who really loves cream cheese frosting.  Every time I make a new cake the first thing he asks is “what kind of frosting does it have?” He thinks buttercream is too sweet, but always appreciates a cake with cream cheese frosting or whip cream frosting.  So while I was going to use a lemon buttercream for this cake, I changed my mind and decided to go with the cream cheese frosting.  It was an excellent choice and I think it complimented the cake perfectly!
