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!
