I love the simplicity and light and fresh taste of this Berry Cake. It’s easy to assemble and decorate and tastes best when paired with the seasons fresh fruit.

How to Make Berry Cake:

  • Bake Cake. Make the cake batter and divide it evenly among 3 round cake pans, to make three thin cake layers. Bake as instructed, remove from pans and allow to cool completely before assembling.

  • Clean fruit gently pat dry with a paper towel. Slice strawberries.
  • Assemble: Place one cake round on a serving plate. Spoon 1/2 – 2/3 cup mousse onto the cake and smooth it towards the edges, leaving at least 1” of cake uncovered around the edge. Place an assortment of berries on top. Repeat with remaining layers of cake. 
  • Serve, or cover well and refrigerate until ready to serve.

  • Mousse: You could use fresh whipped cream, lemon curd, or another flavor of mousse.
  • Gluten-Free: use a gluten-free cake.
