This was a wonderful, wonderful cake. I made it for co-worker's party, and not only was the whole thing eaten, but every single person there asked for the recipe, and even talked about it days later. A number of the other reviewers mentioned that the mousse/whipped cream concoction was too runny. That was really my only complaint about this recipe; the mousse was difficult to work with, especially when it came to frosting the outside of the cake. However, after some experimentation, I found that instant pudding mix, added (dry) to the whipped cream/white chocolate works exceptionally well. Not only does it stabilize the mousse, but it also adds flavor. I recommend trying either the vanilla pudding mix or the white chocolate. Also, to add an extra boost of flavor to the raspberry, try adding a few drops of orange extract. It enhances the berry flavor quite well. I also recommend adding sugar to taste. I agree that the raspberry puree can be rather tart. However, don't sweeten too much; a hint of tartness offsets the sweetness of the cake and the mousse. Hope that helps!
