The Lost Shower Cake!

Back in August, my mom co-hosted a bridal shower for a friend's daughter. They asked me to make the cake, so I brought my supplies home to my parents house, and made the cake there, and forgot my digital camera! I was so sad about it, but my mom said she'd have one of the other women take a photo for me. So here it is, I absolutely loved this cake! They gave me a napkin (which you can see in the top left corner) as something to design the cake around.
I made it with Paula Deen's Almond Sour Cream pound cake recipe, and made a lemon curd and raspberry filling and iced it with vanilla buttercream.
I heard it was better than Bon Bonnerie's! (a big, local bakery)


Unfortunately, the photo was taken with a flash, so Tricia offered to photo shop it and take away some of the brightness, so here is her awesome photoshop work, and then the original!

Looks great! Was PD's recipe for that pound cake fairly light or heavy like a traditional pound cake? Your choices for filling and frosting sounds great!
