Berries And Cream Pinwheel Cake Recipe @pinch

This tender and airy berry cake is made to impress. The sweet and sour combination of strawberries and blueberries is a wonderful combination. Using stabilized whipped cream as icing makes this cake very light. It is not overly sweet so pairs wonderfully with the berries. We did make Cynthia's cake and it was moist and delicious with the filling. But, you can use any white or vanilla cake recipe if you prefer. My best friend turns 60 today, and I wanted to bake her a special cake. She adores strawberries and blueberries, so I threw this together for her. It takes a bit of time to put together, but is well worth the effort!
