- Serves 8 to 12
If using frozen berries, remove them from the freezer. (By the time you serve the cake, the chocolate will hopefully be melting the berries so they are still cold but not frozen.)
Whip the cream until it is thick and softly peaked.
Plop the cake on a plate. Slather the whipped cream across the top of the cake and layer on the berries. If using a layer cake, slip some berries between the layers and lavish some of the cream and berries on the top layer, too. Drizzle the warm melted chocolate across the top of the cake and pile on the decorations.
Everything may be on the slide, but that’s still perfect. Present it with pride. Originally published on May 11, 2012.
Recipe Testers' Tips
This was a fun cake to put together. I used a Victoria Sponge Cake I made earlier in the week. It really took no time at all to assemble and it presented beautifully in a messy sort of way. The whipped cream gave it a heavenly look. Berries, peanut butter cups, and melted chocolate gave the cake a true “celebration” feeling. A big slice of this on the plate was fun to eat. It reminded me of something you would eat in a cartoon. Everyone enjoyed it.
