    Prepare the Cake Batter:

    a. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

    b. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

    Prepare the Chantilly Cream:

    In a chilled mixing bowl, whip the heavy whipping cream until soft peaks form. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract, and continue whipping until stiff peaks form.

    Assemble the Cake:

    a. Once the cakes are completely cooled, place one layer on a serving platter.

    b. Spread a layer of Chantilly cream over the first layer and top with fresh berries.

    c. Place the second cake layer on top and cover the entire cake with the remaining Chantilly cream.

    d. Garnish the top with additional fresh berries and mint leaves.
