Lemon Cream Layer Cake with Fresh Berries

Hello my loves!

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m currently pre-writing a lot of posts which will go live while I’m on my holidays. Hey, I’m probably traveling while you read!!!! Hello from what’s probably a plane. Or a cute veggie café. I don’t know, but don’t mind the super short post today, as I’m a bit short on time and there’s so much content I want to post.

Without further ado, let’s get into this post. I’m dying to tell you guys about this gorgeous lemon cream layer cake (topped with all the fresh berries because fresh berries are really the best!), which coincidentally, was also this year’s birthday cake for yours truly.


I think it’s like the first time in centuries I haven’t had birthday cheesecake. But let me tell you this cake was just as good if not better!

The lemon cake part is moist (heh), soft, fluffy and delicious. Can you ask for more? Then you have a lightly lemony coconut whipped cream which is also the best. Dude, this cake is really TOP NOTCH! Last but not least, we’ve got some berries!!!! Lots of them! I just love them more than words can explain.

So, so good.

Hope you like this one if you decide to give it a go!
