Raspberry Cream Layer: Beat the icing sugar, butter and liqueur (optional) in a small bowl until smooth. Spread evenly over the cake. Cover and chill until set.
Add a few drops of red food colouring to the centre for a bit of extra colour.
Substitute 1/4 cup (50 mL) raspberry preserves mixed with 1 tsp (5 mL) water for the raspberry-flavoured liqueur.
Chocolate Glaze: Combine chocolate chips and butter in a small saucepan set over low heat. Cook, stirring often, until melted. Remove from the heat; stir until smooth. Cool slightly. Spread evenly over the chilled dessert. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour before serving. Reserve any leftover dessert in the refrigerator.
