This was the cake I made for my hubby’s birthday this year. It’s a lemon cake with blueberry buttercream frosting. It was one I had seen on Pinterest and had to give a try! Here’s my adaptation of it-
The original recipe is from The Wholesome Pursuit, her pictures are much better than mine! We’re usually in too big of a hurry to eat the food haha.
The original recipe actually has blueberry lavender frosting, however I not only didn’t have lavender flowers to add but I’m not sure I could bring myself to do it. I did think about using a drop or two of my doterra oil, but I don’t really even like the smell of lavender so needless to say our cake just had blueberry frosting. And while I’m on the subject, let me just say this frosting was different than any I’ve ever made before. It was closer to making marshmallows than frosting. And HOLY BUTTER!!! It used 5, yes you read that right 5 CUBES!!! The end result was a frosting that was greasy and flavor wise was just okay… I’d give it a 5 out of 10.
The cake however had great lemon flavor and was amazing, so if I make this cake again I will make the cake but probably make regular frosting with the blueberries added.
ok so here’s the recipe and my adjustments-
Cool the cake, frost it and you’re done! It’s really easy to make it look fancy- all you need is the right frosting tip- you can get them at Walmart for about $2 and everyone will think you’re a professional! I normally use the reusable plastic frosting bags but couldn’t find one so I used the parchment paper instead and the butter in the frosting made it super slippery and my finger then made a hole in it which I spent the rest of the time trying to cover as I squeezed frosting out to decorate haha. And this is what I ended up with!
