Berry Lemon Cake

I love baking. To me it’s relaxing, allows you to be a little creative and furnishes results that you can enjoy! I love trying new recipes and thanks to Pinterest (follow me here) there are endless recipes that are on my “to-make” list! I wanted to make a bake that had spring like flavors and when I came across this Triple Berry Lemon cake I knew it was the one!

I used my go-to website for baking (Martha Stewart) and found the lemon cake recipe. I added Trader Joe’s frozen berries (which includes strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries) into the cake batter. I wanted there to be three layers so in the top and bottom layer berries were added, the middle layer was just lemon cake.

For the filling between the layers of cake I made a lemon pudding from a jello mix. (Who the heck knows how to make pudding from scratch?!)

The icing was a normal butter icing however I added some lemon zest to give it a little extra zing. (Also, if you’re going to make anything from scratch make your icing! It is super easy, hardly takes any ingredients and you can add just about any flavor to it!) I added a little bit of pink food coloring to give it more of a spring time look.

For the icing of the cake, I piped these roses. I’ve seen it done a bunch of times before, read a quick tutorial of it and was astonished at how easy it is! It was my first time too, so next time I’ll learn from my mistakes.
