Pour batter into prepared pans, roughly 2 cups in each pan; sharply tap pans once on counter to remove air bubbles. Push fresh raspberries into batter of each pan, add as many as you like. Bake at 350° for 18 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out nearly clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes on a wire rack; remove from pans. Cool completely on wire rack.

To prepare frosting, place 2 tablespoons butter and the next 4 ingredients (2 tablespoons butter through cream cheese) in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until fluffy. Add powdered sugar, and beat at low speed just until blended (do not overbeat). Chill 1 hour.

Place 1 cake layer on a plate; spread with 1/2 cup frosting. Top with remaining cake layer. Spread remaining frosting over top and sides of cake. Store cake loosely covered in the refrigerator.
