Easy Berries and Cream Sponge Cake makes the perfect celebratory dessert for summer. Best of all, it’s easy to customize with your favorite berries. Made with layers of vanilla sponge cake, stabilized whipped cream, and fresh ripe strawberries, blueberries and blackberries.
There’s still one more week of August so now is the time to indulge in all the fresh berries while you still can.
I’m finally getting around to posting this Berries and Cream Sponge Cake I made for the summer afternoon tea party (click HERE to read about it) I threw using my KitchenAid stand mixer I received back in June.
Since I was hosting the tea party somewhere else and would have to transport the cake, I stabilized the whipped cream with bloomed gelatin so that it would hold up underneath all the added weight from the fruit. Gelatin helps the whipped cream stay fluffy and not break down for a longer period of time but if you’re going to be serving this right away then feel free to leave out the gelatin.
The sponge cake is a simple, everyday kind of cake and can also be baked ahead of time and refrigerated (wrapped in plastic wrap) until ready to assemble.
It has a rustic naked look, which I happen to love even more than a frosted cake. When you dress it up with fresh berries, it makes a beautiful centerpiece that is perfect for a fancy afternoon tea or dinner party.
Disclosure: I created this post in partnership with KitchenAid and received the mixer and bakeware to create the recipes you see for this Summer Afternoon Tea Party series. As always, all opinions are 100% my own. Thank you for helping support brands that I love!
