 1. To prepare cake: Combine sugar and cake flour in a large mixing bowl.

 10-inch cake pan.
 4. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven until a toothpick inserted in the
 center comes out clean, about 45 to 50 minutes. Let cool completely in pan
 on a wire rack.
 5. To make ganache: In a large, heavy saucepan, bring cream and butter to a
 boil. Remove from heat. Stir in chocolate.
 6. Place cake on wire rack over a cookie sheet large enough to hold the
 cake. Pour warm ganache over cake. Carefully tip the rack and let the
 ganache spill over the edges to coat the cake completely. (Or use a long
 icing spatula to push the ganache over the edges.) Let stand for 30 minutes.
 7. Lightly press raspberries into the ganache along the top edge of the
 cake. Let stand at room temperature for 3 to 4 hours or refrigerate for 2 to
 3 hours.
 Note: Chambord is a French raspberry liqueur sold at most large liquor
