Cake with Raspberry Cheesecake Filling

It was Mom’s birthday and I got to make the cakes for her.  My family loves chocolate cakes so one of the cakes was a German Chocolate cake with coconut pecan frosting.  I wanted the other one to be a white one, but I wanted to try something new with it.  I read about cheesecake filling on the net so thought I would try that.  Now I needed another flavor.  I love raspberry cheesecakes, so that is the flavor I decided on.

First I made the white cake and let it cool.  Then cut the two layers to make four layers.  I put cheesecake filling on the first layer, then a layer of Wilderness Raspberry Pie Filling, next another cake layer… continuing till I used all the cake layers.  Then I covered the cake with butter cream frosting that had a touch of almond flavoring.  It was one of the best cakes I have done and it turned out beautiful.  I can’t wait to make another.


  • 1 – 2 layer White cake
  • 1 container of cheesecake filling
  • 1 can Wilderness raspberry pie filling
  • 1 recipe butter cream frosting


  1. Divide the cakes so you have 4 layers, trim off the top of each cake so it is level. 
  2. Place first top of cake upside down and spread a layer of cheesecake filling on it to half an inch from the edge. 
  3. Next spread a layer of raspberry pie filling, also to half inch of the edge. 
  4. Use 1/3 of each filling on each layer.  Put another layer of cake and the next layer of the fillings. Continue, ending with the cake layer. 
  5. Spread the frosting on the edge then finish it off by frosting the top.  Decorate as desired.
  6. An easy way to cut the layers so you have 4 layers instead of 2 is to insert toothpicks into the side of the layer of the cake, half way up the side of the layer. 
  7. Push the pick in about 1/2 an inch, spaced about 3 inches apart.  Get a length of string, thread, (or my favorite) floss that will go around the cake plus about 9 inches longer. 
  8. Lay the floss around the cake so it rests on top of the picks.  Cross the ends over each other, grasp them and pull.  The floss will slice through the cake evenly, making 4 perfectly sliced layers.

*You can find the cheesecake filling in the dairy section next to the cream cheese.

Cake with Raspberry Cheesecake Filling - FAQs

Raspberry filling is usually made with fresh or frozen raspberries that are cooked down to help concentrate the mixture. This thickens the mixture and enhances the flavor of the filling

Fresh raspberries are puréed and sieved to remove any seeds, then mixed with sugar. The purée is dropped onto the cream cheese filling and swirled using a toothpick or wooden skewer. It’s quick to make the graham cracker crust and filling, then the cheesecake needs about an hour to bake and at least six hours to chill.

Unlike a jam filling, this raspberry cake filling needs to be refrigerated for food safety. It’s best to keep the cake refrigerated until a few hours before serving and should not be left unrefrigerated longer than 4 hours.

Evenly spread frosting across the cake layer. As show in the picture above, you want to add some frosting on top of each cake layer to act as a barrier between the cake and the filling.

The raspberry cheesecake keeps well in a closed container in the fridge for 4-5 days.

Buttercream is a classic filling choice, but you might also consider trying one of our other favorites to add extra flavor to your cake.
  1. Chocolate Filling.
  2. Strawberry Cream Filling.
  3. Raspberry Filling.
  4. Apricot Filling.
  5. Cream Cheese Filling.

The filling should keep in the freezer for 3-4 months, or in the fridge for about 3-4 weeks. If using fresh raspberries, you may need to add an additional tablespoon of cornstarch to thicken it.
