Blackberry Cake with Whipped Cream Filling and Frosting

Suitably splendid for a ballroom celebration but wholesome enough for a backyard picnic, this blackberry and whipped-cream creation by contributing editor and pastry chef Jason Schreiber exemplifies farm-to-(sweets)table cuisine. It tastes like a teatime treat (think scones with jam and clotted cream) and would look right at home at a country estate, thanks to marbleized frosting that's colored with crushed berries.

  1. Trim domes from cakes. Slice each cake in half to create two layers.
  2. Brush one layer of cake with syrup and spread with 1/4 cup strained jam. Spread with 1/3 of whipped cream filling, and repeat with remaining cake layers. Chill 1 hour.
  3. Frost outside with whipped cream frosting, using tinted frosting and jam to create marbled effect. Top with blackberries. Keep refrigerated.

Cake is best the day it is assembled.
