Blackberry Lime Cake with blackberries

Decadent Blackberry Lime Cake

This decadent and delicate blackberry lime cake will steal your heart and taste buds! It’s simplicity is stunning and captivating and let’s talk about those colors! I love the pop of vibrant lime green against the soft purple of the frosting. Topped with juicy blackberries and petite flowers, this is the ultimate spring-time cake!

Watch my video recipe for step-by-step instructions for this blackberry lime cake!

For this cake, I made 1 1/2 portions of my ‘Vanilla Cake’ recipe and my ‘Berry Whipped Cream Frosting’ using blackberry sauce instead of the raspberry sauce I used in the video. I added loads of fresh lime zest straight into the cake batter to add extra lime flavor. And, I also added some whole berries to the batter for more berry flavor! You can use frozen berries for the frosting and cake layers if you don’t have fresh berries. Check out both of those videos down below!

For the filling, I made some home-made lime curd. If you’ve never tried making your own citrus curd at home, you’re in for a treat! It’s super silky and oh-so-good! I serve the extra curd along with the cake and keep any leftovers in the fridge. It’s great on toast!
