I'm planning a Swedish-themed summer wedding shower to take place at the height of berry season. (Raspberries will be in, but I should also be able to get day-neutral strawberries from the farmer's market.)
I think a towering berry and cream cake would be the perfect dessert, but I don't have the ideal recipe. I could do something as simple as sponge layers frosted in whipped cream, but I have a distant memory of a cake I once had with a much richer cream frosting - I wonder if it was chiboust cream? Or should I have some meringue layers?
I'd appreciate any suggestions for the perfect cake. (You don't have to copy out the recipe - I can look it up at the library if it's in a resonably current cookbook!)
