Chocolate Cake with Berry Filling

My son has requested this cake as his birthday cake more than once, and I just made it for my husband's birthday.  We first had it at a friend's house (also a birthday cake) and now it's a family favorite!

Chocolate Cake with Berry Filling

For Cake:
2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt
2/3 cup Cocoa
3 cups Flour
2 cups Sugar
2 Tbsp Cider Vinegar
1 Tbsp Vanilla
1/3 cup Oil
2 cups Water

For Filling/Topping:
1 pkg frozen Raspberries or Strawberries
1-2 cups Powdered Sugar
1 pint Heavy Cream for whipping
Fresh strawberries or raspberries

Preheat oven to 350*. Grease and flour two round cake pans. 

Mix ingredients together in mixer, and pour into prepared cake pans.  Bake at 350* until done (about 20 minutes), cool completely and refrigerate.

For filling, puree thawed and drained berries with powdered sugar (1-2 cups) and about 1/4 cup cocoa to get frosting consistency. 

Spread on bottom cake layer and refrigerate. Top with top cake layer, using toothpicks to hold the layers together as needed.

Whip cream with a little sugar and vanilla to frost. Top with fresh berries and drizzle with chocolate or sprinkle with mini chocolate chips or shaved chocolate bar.
