Triple Berry Layered Lemon Cream Cake

Well hello Wednesday. How are you?

Really? That’s too bad. Would you like some cake to perk up your day? You would? Perfect! I have just one slice of this left in my fridge with your name on it!

Oh wait.

You’re NOT REAL. Well never mind. You wouldn’t mind if I shared with my readers would you? Aww thanks!

End scene.

You guys, I have a problem. I’m talking to my days of the week like people. What kind of person does this? Am I mentally ill? I also talk to plants. And birds at car washes. –>true story. Guess I’m still sleep deprived from my trip to Seattle.

Also, would you like a slice of cake? You would? Perfect! I’ll have it out ready and waiting once you all get over to Portland. 

I know this looks fancy, but I swear to you on my non-existant goldfishs life that this is one of the easiest desserts you will ever make. I know you don’t believe me but it’s true. Nothing remotely complicated about it. The hardest part is making the cake batter. And that’s even super easy. So, you should jump on this recipe! Perfect for the 4th of July or just to have as a summer treat after a BBQ or something. Super fresh with the berries and lemon whipped cream. Light, creamy and refreshing for those really hot days.

Here’s how you do it:

Lemon Cream Cake

Lets pretend that it wasn’t dark and dreary when I started this recipe and I showed you all the steps before this photo. ANYWAYS, once your very thin sheet cake has cooled, slice it into 4 smaller rectangles.

Place one of the rectangles onto a servings platter and get ready to whip up some cream.


Here lies 2 cups of pure gold. Cream is one of my favorites ingredients ever. Ever ever ever. Pour this into a large bowl,


along with some vanilla,

Powdered sugar

and powdered sugar. Whip it up until stiff peaks start to form.

Lemon zest

Then at the very end, mix in a little lemon zest. And, that’s it!

Whipped Cream

Lemony cream tastes GOOOOOOOOD.


Even my little one swiped a lick….and tried to convince me otherwise. “Actually Mommy, I didn’t have any!” Oh really? Your chin is telling me otherwise…

Once all that cream is ready to go, spread a quarter of it onto that bottom slice of cake and top with raspberries. Keep layering until you’ve got all the layers locked and loaded with more cream and berries.

Refrigerate until ready to serve. Be prepared to wow your guests 🙂

Happy Wednesday!

    I see this as a great Father’s Day dessert especially since it is supposed to be 95 & humid this weekend here in northern central Indiana (yep about 15 degrees above normal for this time of year…but its better than an extremely cold wet summer!!)

    Thank you for sharing!!
