Not only is this cake beautiful, it’s also delicious. The layers are so delicate, tender and moist. I add loads of lemon zest directly into the batter to make sure there’s some lemon flavor in every bite. To make this cake even more interesting, I made one of the layers chocolate! It’s a surprise flavor that goes so well with all the other flavors! Each layer is then filled with zesty lemon curd and sweet blueberry preserves. I used store-bought lemon curd for this recipe, but I love to make my own when I have the time. Check out my ‘Classic Fruit Tart‘ for that recipe!
I frosted the cake with a beautiful blue-colored buttercream and some white chocolate ganache. It’s the perfect way to garnish this cake. And those massive blueberries are impressive! These are not the typical berries but my local grocery store had them and I just had to put them on this cake!
Add a few springs of fresh mint for an additional pop of color!
