VARIATION: This cake can also be made using a 13x9 inch pan and using the mousse as the frosting.
- Prepare cake as directed and cook in two round cake pans. Invert on rack and let cool.
- In medium bowl, combine milk and extracts. Beat in pudding mix on medium-low speed for 2 minutes. Fold in thawed whipped topping. Refrigerate 3-5 minutes.
- Place one cake layer on platter. Spread with half the raspberry preserves. Spread 3/4 of the filling over top. Spread remaining preserves over second cake layer; invert over filling on first layer. Cover. Refrigerate until filling is firm, approximately 1 hour.
- Before serving, sift confectioners' sugar over top. Garnish top with remaining filling, and raspberries, if desired.
