Hi Abigail, Yes, yes, yes! Use the fabulous fresh raspberries we have here in Scotland right now. Last week I made Rose’s Strawberry Maria cake but with raspberry cloud cream rather than strawberry. It was just superb and the rasp flavour was amazing. I don’t think I ever got such compliments about a cake in my life and I make many, many cakes - mostly from TCB. I just got a few kilos of raspberries in and am about to puree them now. I shall use most this week but shall freeze the excess puree to use another time. I always use fresh fruit when it’s in season. Same with the brambles (blackberries) in September. Please let us know how it tastes!
