Recipe Tips

- To make ahead, prepare cake and wrap cooled cake securely in plastic food wrap. Freeze up to 2 weeks. The salsa can be made up to 4 hours ahead. The berries will become more juicy and the flavors will blend more intensely.

-If you prefer, use all strawberries instead of mixed berries for the salsa.
