For our Labor Day BBQ, I made a double layer 4 berry cake. So easy. Boxed cake, fresh berries – raspberries, strawberries, blackberries and blueberries, heavy whipping cream, vanilla extract and powdered sugar.
I baked two 8″ rounds according to directions on cake box. Oh, I added a packet of vanilla pudding to my yellow cake mix.
For the whipped cream:
3 cups of heavy whipping cream
3 tablespoons of powdered sugar
3 teaspoons of vanilla extract
Freeze a metal mixing bowl for ten minutes. Pour in your 3 cups of heavy whipping cream and whip until consistency resembles melted ice cream. Add sugar and vanilla, whip til you start to see mix thickening. If you insert and remove a spoon, you should see a small peak at the exit point. Over-whipping will produce a crumbly butter-like consistency.
Cover bottom layer of cake with whipped cream, layer cut fruits, cover with more whipped cream, place second cake layer and repeat whipped cream and fruit layers.
Easy, simple, delicious!
Someone who doesn’t like cake had a slice and praised my skills. Fan-freaking-tastic!!
