5) Take the cakes out of the oven and place them on the side to cool for 10 minutes and then remove the cakes from the tin and place on a wire rack.

6) Whip up the cream with the electrical whisk.

7) Smooth out one half on the cake with the raspberry Jam and then put the cream on top.

8) Finally place the other half on the cake on top and sprinkle with icing sugar.
