I made this for my husband's birthday and didn't have all the right ingredients and kind of winged it. Turned out fabulous and was a big hit for everyone! And I won't lie, I put it in tupperware and ate it straight out of the containers for days afterwords! There's fruit in it, so it's still healthy, right? :)

  • 1 (10 1/4 ounce) box yellow cake mix (Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Classic Yellow)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.

  6. Place berries in large bowl and set aside.
  7. Microwave 1/4 cup preserves in small bowl on HIGH until melted, about 30 seconds.
  8. Pour over berries and stir carefully to glaze berries.
  9. Place 1 layer of cake on a platter; spread with whipped cream and spoon 1/3 cup berries on it.
  10. Repeat with 2nd and 3rd layers.
  11. Spoon remaining berries in center of top layer. Decorate edge with whipped cream.
  12. Refrigerate 1 hour.
  13. Melt remaining preserves and spoon over top of cake after slightly cooling, letting drip down the side.
  14. Refrigerate one hour more.

Surprised myself that I was able to get all fresh berries for this cake, although I will admit that the strawberries weren't the most flavorful! Still, this turned out to be one very, very nice tasting cake, & one that I look forward to making again later in the year! Many thanks!
