When local berries are in season, there is nothing that can compete. Fresh, juicy and sweet with just the right amount of contrasting tartness and an aroma that is out of this world. For us, it’s a glorious string of abundance from April to September. While off-season berries do their best to fill the void over the fall and winter months, what they’re lacking in flavor is only exasperated by their hefty price tag. So before we wave goodbye to yet another berry season, let’s bake something amazing with these extraordinary little treats. Nature’s candy deserves to be put on a pedestal, preferably on top of one of these mouthwatering cakes. Here’s 10 Fresh Berry Layer Cakes to bake before summer ends!
