Triple Berry Cake

What could be more romantic than a Friday night on the river watching the fireworks and enjoying delicious buffet of edibles? C'est La Vie, a little gem of a French bakery in New Hope, Pennsylvania, offers cozy seating and light catering right behind their shop every Friday night for the in-town fireworks show over the Delaware River. For the price of a ticket, this BYOB, fairly intimate event gives you a perfect view of the show; offers a delectable array of cheeses, pâtés, fresh breads, and fruits; and concludes with a dessert of your choice and coffee, tea, or absolutely delicious (if you like it sweet) hot chocolate.

My dessert of choice was the Triple Berry Cake, a light yellow cake layered with whipped berry creams and frostings then topped with a berry glaze. It was a slightly sweet cake (I would therefore recommend pairing it with tea or maybe coffee instead of the hot chocolate) and was a great way to finish out the night and start the weekend.
