Prepare a 10-12 cup bundt cake pan by spraying with “Baker’s Joy” spray, or coating with vegetable shortening and dusting with flour.
Using a hand-held or stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar in a large bowl for five minutes on low speed – or until the mixture is light and fluffy.
Add eggs to the butter and sugar mixture, one at a time while continuing to use the mixer. Make sure each egg is well incorporated before adding the next one. Scrape the sides of the bowl as needed.
Add vanilla and beat the mixture well.
In a separate medium bowl, whisk together cake flour and salt.
Add small amount of flour mixture to the creamed butter mixture and beat well.
Add small amount of ginger beer to creamed butter mixture.
Continue alternating between flour mixture and the ginger beer until all is incorporated into the creamed butter mixture.
Dust the raspberries lightly with 2 tablespoons of cake flour, before folding gently into the cake batter.
Pour the batter into the Bundt cake pan.
Bake until a skewer inserted near the center comes out clean, 80-90 minutes. The exact timing will depend on the type and size of bundt pan you use so watch it closely.
Remove from oven and allow cake to cool for 20 minutes before attempting to remove from cake pan.
Loosen the edges of the cake lightly with a knife, then turn pan over onto plate and tap gently around the rim and bottom of the Bundt pan to loosen the cake before lifting to remove.
Make the glaze:
Whisk confectioner’s sugar and lime juice in a medium-sized bowl until the glaze has formed. Optional: Add ¼ cup of macerated (mashed) raspberries to the mixture to give it a pink hue and a slight texture.
Add more confectioner’s sugar or more lime juice to suit the desired texture and consistency.
Pour over the cooled cake and let stand until set.
Top with lime wedges and raspberries.
Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 24 hours, then refrigerate any leftovers.
