Berry Layer Cake

Drawing inspiration from Bon Appetit's June 2006 cover, I made this Berry Layer cake, which is Flo Braker's White Butter Cake (a touch too sweet for my taste... no, really), the usual cream cheese frosting, and instead of fresh berries, canned (Comstock). Huge mistake. Despite me trying to get as much of the cornstarchy syrup out of them, it still looks like white trash cake. I would have preferred to use fresh, but they cost $6 for 3 ounces (Driscoll's), which was too much for me. Baguio berries were not in season, GRRR!!! By the way, this was my first time to use Comstock. Lesson: DON'T USE COMSTOCK!!!!
