Raspberry Sheet Cake

Our local Farmers Market has the most beautiful Raspberries right now and I could not resist making a special dessert just for these beautiful berries.  Not only does it give some beautiful color and flavor it offers a little glimmer of hope that spring is just around the corner.  I already have a very special dinner planned for "Honey Bunny", but we can always use an extra dessert, and who knows  maybe you will drop by and surprise us, I sure hope so!
