A Berry Shortcake

Late night feedings for Sarah has allowed me to catch up on some TV time and happened to catch River Cottages on The Travel & Living Channel! It just makes me want to live in such quaint and serene countrysides! They picked their own fruits and herbs for their cooking and baking right from their own garden! Isnt that amazing?

Anyhow; the chef was preparing a dessert for a party and he had a bowl full of raspberries! He whipped up some cream and had a simple cake baked! Viola! Cake dolloped with the whipping cream and filled thoroughly with raspberries and topped off lastly with icing sugar! It was like a raspberry winter wonderland!

I knew Jerome would literally be drooling over the television for that cake! And so; we decided to make a berry shortcake! He went out to the supermarket and got us some blackberries, blueberries and raspberries! We were short of having strawberries to make it a full berry party! I baked a butter cake and used the stabilized whipped cream frosting recipe for our topping and started to decorate the berry shortcake and with a final touch of some fairy dust; we created our own berry-licious winter wonderland!

Delicious was all I can say; the buttery cake with the creamy whipped cream ending with a slight burst of flavors from biting into the berries!
