Berry Chantilly Layer Cake

by - January 28, 2019

There is something to be said about spring moving toward summer that makes me need to celebrate with cake. Perhaps the reality strawberry picking is in its prime in Louisiana or possibly it's the affectionate summer recollections back home in Wisconsin that makes them long for the months ahead.

Each May I get amped up for cakes. What's more, this great summer dessert with endless supply of yellow cake loaded up with apricot coated strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries with almond chantilly icing brings me so much joy.

Serving cake amid the late spring months is the best. At the point when it's made with virus whipped cream it's reviving and a mainstream dessert among visitors. We like to appreciate it with naturally prepared frosted tea, flame broiled meats, and a bunch of dear loved ones. That is everything necessary to make them long for the warm summer a very long time ahead.
