I recently watched an episode of the Great British Baking Show 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.

    I used this recipe as a filling in a white sheet cake. It was served at a Veterans Day Celebration. The only thing I changed was to add a bit of lemon juice to brighten it up and to strain the seeds from my frozen fruit. It got rave reviews! I kept hearing people saying “It’s berry berry good”!

    1. Glad everyone enjoyed it!
