Fresh figs in the U.S. come mostly from CA with some from AZ, and the season starts in May with a couple of varieties producing into Nov. I read somewhere that Whole Foods Market carries fresh figs.

If you can't find fresh figs, you can reconstitute dried ones and use them.

Another variation, if you can't find dried figs, or like jam.
There are various fig jams available in Italian markets & delicatessens, and also on Amazon, if you happen to be ordering other stuff.
If you do use the jam to garnish the top of the cake, reduce the sugar in the batter by about 1/2 to 1 tbsp per tbsp of jam used.
