What is the name of this cake

One of the managers at work brought this cake into the office. I asked him what kind of cake was it. He said he didn't know it was just some cake that his wife picked up from the store. Can anyone tell me the correct name of this cake and give me a possible recipe ?
Thanks.

  1. Without any further information, I'd guess that it's a vanilla cake with white chocolate buttercream and raspberry filling. I've not tried this recipe but it looks delish . . . http://www.ameessavorydish.com/2012/1...

      Thanks

      It had little pieces of shaved white chocolate on the sides of the cake also.

        Yes, I agree with you. I don't see evidence of coconut in your photo. Some years ago, Dean & Deluca had a white chocolate raspberry cake (I think for Valentine's Day?) that looked a lot like the cake in your photo.

        Mrs.Patmore nailed it I think...I agree; it looks like a white cake with cream and jam between the layers.

        Here's another recipe.

          Mrs. Patmore, the Mrs. Downton Abbey Patmore?

        2. Whatever it is it looks delicious.

              I probably would have done the same. Maybe cake making will have a comeback, that is a piece of food art!

            1. Vanilla white chocolate raspberry almond.

              1. It could be a genoise or chiffon. How was the texture?
