- Wash the berries and dry thoroughly.
- With the whisk attachment of a standing mixer, whip together the cream, vanilla, and sugar until soft peaks form.
- Transfer half of the whipped cream to a large bowl. Carefully fold in half a pint of the blueberries and a half pint of the raspberries.
- Spread the berry whipped cream evenly over the top of one cake.
- Place the remaining cake on top of the smooth berry whipped cream. Cover the cake with the remaining plain whipped cream.
