Fruits of the Forest Cake
In the height of summer, it's hard to pick just one berry to feature in a cake. Taking a hint from a favorite Italian dessert called frutti di bosco, we used blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries in this pastry cream–stuffed showstopper.
Why This Recipe Works
Taking a cue from the Italian dessert frutti di bosco, we used three types of berries on top and around this summer showstopper cake: raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries. To make it really impressive, we alternated layers of vanilla cake and creamy custard and then surrounded the whole stack with lemon buttercream frosting. A light sprinkle of powdered sugar on top completed the look with one more nod to its Italian inspiration.
