I love a classic cake so I’m always looking for ways to add something special without ruining the simplicity of my dessert. I topped this plain white cake with fresh berries for an easy and beautiful Fourth of July cake. Since berries are in season right now, it’s the perfect solution.

  4. This looks delicious! Two quick questions though… what is between the layers, and what did you use for icing? I looked for a recipe link but didn’t see one. :(

  8. Hi Connie–A baker made the white cake (and I added the berries) so I don’t have a recipe. Sorry! But it’s raspberry filling between the layers. xo
