Betty's Easy Steps
- Make, bake and cool the cakes as directed on the box using the eggs, butter and milk.
- Level tops of cooled cakes. Cut each cake horizontally through the centre to give four discs. Place one disc on a cake decorating turntable, serving plate or cake stand. Spread with one-third of the sour cream and top with one-third of the raspberries. Repeat, ensuring each disc is sitting evenly on top of the one under it.
- Frost the top and side of the cake with the vanilla frosting, plus the frosting from the sachets in a thin coat, scraping off the excess with a long palette knife to give a naked effect around the sides of the cake. Chill 15 minutes until firm to touch.
- Transfer cake to a serving plate or stand if not already on one.
- For the drip, heat the chocolate frosting to tub directions until quite runny when stirred.
- Working quickly, gently pour about three-quarters of the runny frosting into the center of the cake and ease over edges with a spatula.
- Drips will run down the sides of the cake. Top with the decorations.
- Cake can be made and frosted the day before required. Store in the refrigerator. Decorate the top just before serving.
- Soften the frosting very slightly if necessary (especially if it is a cold day!), following pack directions, so that it is easily spreadable.
- For a fun surprise, fold 1 tablespoon per cake of red and green sprinkles or rainbow confetti in to the cake mix before pouring into pans.
