I was recently watching an episode of the Great British Baking Show saw where Mary Berry made a cake with a Mixed Berry Cake Filling.
Fortunately, I had to make a cake for a birthday party and wanted to do something a little different. I really wanted to make a 2 layer cake with some mixed berries between the layers.
Needless to say, I tried to memorize what she did but unfortunately, I did not get her exact recipe. That being said, I did get enough details from her that I was able to come up with this delicious berry filling for a layered cake.
While this recipe calls for mixed berries, you could easily substitute for any type of frozen berries using the same process.
