Raspberry Cake with Buttercream Icing

I made this recipe a few months back as a belated birthday treat for my co-workers.  I omitted the lacy chocolate hearts and food coloring.  The cake was delicious.  The buttercream icing came out overwhelmingly buttery.  Maybe I’ve never had real buttercream icing, but it was too thick, too much like just eating plain butter.  I’m going to use Julia Child’s recipe for buttercream icing this time from her book “The French Chef Cookbook.”  There’s not a whole lot of difference between the two recipes, just slight variances on the amount of eggs and sugar, besides the addition of vanilla extract to Julia’s recipe.  We’ll see how it turns out.
