Divide the puff pastry into 4-5 layers,roll it out very thin.Bake the layers separately at 225C for 5 min or until golden brown.Cool.
Cut all the layers into equal sizes.Keep the crumbs for covering the cake.
On to the first layer add cream & spread over fresh raspberries,leaving few for decorating later.
Put the second layer over.Cover that with cream again.Top with third layer.Cream.Fourth layer.Cover with cream all over.Sprinkle crumbs on to the cake to finalize.
