Berry & Custard Cake






































This cake has been in my head for weeks now. I knew I just had to make it as soon as I saw it. Although, to be honest, I get this feeling about most of the the cakes that the Caked Crusader dreams up. That girl bakes up a storm!

I nearly lost this recipe. I stupidly didn't bookmark it and when I decided it was time to make the cake I realised, in horror that I didn't have the recipe and couldn't remember who had posted it. It took a lot of searching to find it again, so I am hoping this will be a learning curve for me!

I will now let your drool over the cake in peace!

A sponge base filled with juicy raspberries and blackberries, coated in a blanket of creamy custard, topped with a sinful amount of whipped cream and jewelled with more delicious Scottish raspberries.

  7. Hi Johanna, it was well received. I do have to get one of those cake tins, where the lid covers all of the cake and lifts off.

    No, I am afraid not Lysy, it is still pouring down here, which is just encouraging all those darn weeds in the garden!

    Hi Ohio Mom, help yourself!

    Hi Julia, I am so glad I found the recipe again. I am not a cakey person, but I had great fun making this.

    Thank you Usha and Kevin :)

    I did lose it for a while Grace, I am glad I found it again :)

  9. I had a bunch of recipes I found online through bloggers that I had copied and saved to my hard drive just waiting for the moment to make. Well, my hard drive just crashed and I couldn't get any of the data off of it. So I completely understand how it goes when you see something but can't remember which blogger posted it.

    This berry custard cake looks so beautiful.

  13. Well, you sure have a great entry. The sweetness and creminess of the custard with the sharpness of the berries make for a great combination.This is a fabulous cake. I will pay Cake Crusader a visit. ; o )

  21. Hi Ruth, I am looking forward to seeing what other people bookmark. It is a great idea for an event!

    Hi VV, that is awful news! I lost everything on my hard drive once and it was really dreadful. I still think I am not as careful as I should be with backing things up. You become reliant and trusting of your computer, don't you?

    Hi Lisa, nice to meet you :)

    Thank you Caked Crusader, you are such an inspiration to me when it comes to baking.

    Hi Beth, don't be counting those calories then :)

    Hey Valentina, I just know you will love that blog!

    Hi Recipe Girl, I hope you have a nice time tonight :)

    You are mad Lore, but thank you :)

    Hi Sophie, I just had a look and I don't see your email. Could you re-send it?

    Thank you Jenn :)

    Hi Diann, it is a good idea for an event, isn't it?

    Hi Mike, I would even love the base of the cake without the cream, But it sure does make it look pretty.

    Thank you Usha, that was very kind of you :)
