Deneece's notes for this recipe:
One of my daughters coworkers whom is like an adopted son to me asked me if i would make him a cake for his 21st birthday. I gave him a choice of three types and this is what he chose. The cake is wonderful and he passed a slice to everyone at work and even the ups delivery guy lol. (who btw told my daughter that i will now have a stalker because of my amazing cake lol) Anyway it has become well loved by both family and friends, not to mention random delivery guys ; )

This recipe is truly decadent. I happened to have a pail of fresh blackberries - thanks to my friends at nearby Boyd Mill Farm - and I couldn't imagine a better way to put them to use than in this wonderful cake! Try it... you'll like it!

thank you ladies, this was a challenge the friend of my daughters who wanted a birthday cake thinks i am amazing cook so when he decided on a blackberry cake i couldnt just go plain lol it was definitely delicious and i ended up making two. the first one i made just to make sure it was going to be tasty. i made it exactly the same only i didnt decorate it. i just frosted it and put some blackberries on top. then made everyone in the house (7 peeps for 70 to 7) and my two neighbors taste it lol. once i got the thumbs up i made the second one (the one pictured) and was satisfied it would be a big hit! My daughter said it was devoured once it got to jason and the crew at her work place and i have had several people ask me to make it for them also lol.

a blue ribbon..........ahhhhhhhhhhhh i can dream : ) Hugs to you both!
