Orange Raspberry Tort

I needed something to go with my homemade Chocolate-Raspberry ice cream on Sunday. So I came up with this orange tort... It couldn't have been better!

Orange Raspberry Tort
Orange cake mix
1/3 cup oil
1 cup water
2 Tbs cointreau
3 eggs
Mix together all ingredients until smooth. Pour into 2 prepared cake pans (I used 9inch loaf pans)Bake in a preheated oven at 350° for 30-35 minutes. Allow cake to cool. When cooled slice the cake into 1/2-1 inch slices. I do this by running a wooden skewer through the cake then carefully slicing through.
1 cup frozen raspberries
2 cups whipping cream
8oz mascarpone cheese
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tbs cointreau (or OJ)
fresh raspberries
Whip cream into stiff peaks. In another bowl combine mascarpone, sugar, and liquid. Gently fold in the whipped cream.

Layer the cake with cream, scatter the frozen berries (they will melt in), cake-cream-berries, four layers high. Decorate the top with berries. Store in the fridge and slice in layers with a good knife.
I will have to ask Jerry's forgiveness for the box cake mix. Life is to short to sweat the little things. First, store bought icing and now a boxed cake mix... I've gone to the dark side. Bless my heart.

Y'all enjoy!

That looks so good - you're making me hungry!

Yum - O! This cake looks like an Italian "cassata"! Sounds delicious.

I made Seafood andouille gumbo -- I had to substitute a little but it came out soooo good! Making a dark roux was a new experience fro me and easier than I thought.

DebraK~ I agree the mix is a joke between Jerry and I :-). they would never consider a mix.
