Lemon Berry Sponge Cakes


Is it me or did June fly on by? It's almost July and time for all of those fabulous cook outs and parties! These pretty little cakes are perfect to take along to all those parties. They are so super easy to make. Like done on 10  minutes. I am not usually one for store bought cakes but they are a time saver and taste amazing when you add all the ingredients.




Sweet and lemony cream a top light fluffy sponge cake with super sweet summer berries. It doesn't get much better than that! You family and guests will approve to! You can add any more types of berries you want to! There is just something about lemon and berries that just go so well.

1 cup heavy cream
4 tablespoons instant lemon pudding mix
1 teaspoon lemon zest

For the whipped cream
1 cup Heavy Cream
1/2 teaspoon clear vanilla extract

Directions
In a stand mixer with the whisk attachment mix one cup heavy cream with the instant lemon pudding and lemon zest. Whisk on high speed until mixture thickens. Remove the mixture from the bowl put into a pastry bag and place in fridge.

Rinse out the bowl and wash whisk. Add one cup heavy cream, vanilla, and sugar. Whisk on high speed until stiff peaks form. Put mixture in a pastry bag and place in fridge.

Lay out the sponge cakes on a platter, snip the end of the lemon cream filled pastry bag. Pipe even amounts of the lemon cream on each sponge cake. Next evenly place strawberries and blueberries on each sponge cake. Snip the end of the pastry bag filled with whip cream and pipe even amounts over the berries and lemon cream. Sprinkle with remaining zest and serve immediately.
