2 tablespoons red raspberry preserves
1 (10 inch) round sponge or white cake
1/4 cup dark Puerto Rican rum, optional

Sprinkle with remaining rum-sherry mixture. Place remaining whipped cream in pastry bag with fluted tip; pipe rosettes around edge of bowl and in center. Top with fresh raspberries. Chill at least 8 hours before serving. Makes 12 servings.
