    Using serrated knife, cut rounded top off each white cake to level surface. Cut each red velvet cake horizontally to make 2 layers. Brush off loose crumbs. Place 1 red velvet cake layer, cut side up, on serving plate; gently brush with 2 tablespoons liqueur. Spread with half of the raspberry jam mixture. Top with 1 white cake; spread with 3/4 cup frosting. Repeat layers. Top with a third red velvet cake layer. (Reserve remaining red velvet cake layer for later use.) Spread very thin layer of frosting on side of cake to seal in crumbs. Spread remaining frosting on side and top of cake. Garnish with raspberries. Store in refrigerator.
