This Lemon Blueberry Layer Cake with Lemon Buttercream Frosting will knock your socks off, from the blueberry- and lemon-infused cake, through the succulent lemon curd and straight to the lemony buttercream frosting. It's a show-stopper, both in taste and appearance!
I made this beautiful cake for my mother-in-law's birthday celebration. Sadly, I was not able to enjoy a piece, but! Thankfully there is a but! The piece I carved out for these photos is sitting in my freezer, patiently waiting for my teeth to sink into its lemony flesh. Wednesday, people, Wednesday this will be my breakfast. I will not be able to comment on its flavor until then but based on the reactions of those who tried it and the fact that not a single crumb remained on the cake plate, I'd say it was a total delicious success.
So there are quite a few things going on in this cake. There's Lemon Curd, which is vital to the success of the final product. There are both blueberries and lemons infused into the cake. And there is the decadent, fresh Lemon Buttercream Frosting. Now, please do not let all of this overwhelm you. My suggestion is to make this cake in stages. Make the lemon curd (which only takes 15 minutes) and put it in the fridge. Bake the cakes next and set them out to cool. From there you're on the home stretch, as the frosting only takes a few minutes to make and assembly is the fun part!
One thing is certain if you make this cake. It will impress! It's a beauty!
Have a wonderful weekend! See you back here on Monday!
