   an electric mixer fitted with a paddle, beat the
   butter until light and fluffy (4-5 minutes). Add the
   masa, baking powder, salt and sugar and mix till
   blended. Add the water, corn puree, raspberry puree
   and vanilla and mix just until combined. Dough should
   be light and very moist. Spread the dough on soaked
   corn husks in a square approximately 1/4 inch thick.
   Distribute some of the raisins, almonds and candied
   lemon peel in center and roll up to form a cylindrical
   shape. Tie or fold ends of husks over to enclose
   tamale. Steam tamales for 30 minutes and serve warm
   with some of the ginger custard sauce and a garnish of
   fresh berries and mint sprigs.
