This is a beautiful looking cake that is perfect for the holidays.

1/3 cup shortening
2/3 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups fresh raspberries, divided
In a small saucepan, combine the flour and milk; mix until smooth. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly for 1 to 2 minutes or until thickened. Let cool to room temperature.
In a small bowl, cream together the butter, shortening, sugar and vanilla. Beat in the milk mixture until sugar is dissolved (about 5 minutes).
