Spring Fling Cake (The Market.. Larimer Street)

If you have lived in Denver any length of time, chances are you know about the Spring Fling Cake that is sold at The Market in downtown Denver on Larimer Street. It is famous.
 Layer after layer of zucchini cake encased in fluffy, creamy cream cheese icing 
and packed with fresh fruit. Amazing! 
Mark's mom loves this cake (and it was her birthday) so my sister-in-law searched for the recipe 
and found it using good 'ol Google. 
The cake is very easy to make! It takes time but if you follow the directions, 
it tastes as good as the real thing. 

The Denver Post published the recipe several years ago and this blog 
does a good job describing how to make it. 
The only thing I would add is to assemble the cake the day that you are eating it. 
The fruit on the top tends to run a bit if you make it the day before. 
It does not affect the taste of the cake just the presentation. 

I will definitely be making this again in the near future.
