Daring Bakers, Ready to Party!

This was a nice challenge this month. I’m always up for making a beautiful cake! Our challenge this month was to make the “Perfect Party Cake” Courtesy of Dorie Greenspan’s Baking from My Home to Yours. This was a very simple yet elegant cake that can be done in so many ways. As long as we baked the cake and made the frosting, everything else was free game. I chose a blueberry theme, which was phenomenal! I also chose to press chopped white chocolate onto the sides of my cake.

I’m not one for taking pictures of each and every step, but I had to snap a photo of this beautiful lemon sugar. Not only was it so beautiful, but it smelled so good, like a dream! So here’s my one step by step photo!


Here’s the beautiful blueberry top of my cake. I used frozen blueberries and they held up very nicely. By the time we cut into the cake, they had softened.

Here’s the inside layers. I spread a blueberry fruit spread then the frosting over that. It was really good. I love the blue color.


Our Hostess this month, Morven, over at Food Art and Random thoughts, challenged us all to make this delicious cake. Please check out her blog to get the complete recipe. Be sure to check out all of the other Daring Baker’s Party Cakes!

    Your cake is beautiful and looks so yummy! What did you use the lemon sugar for? It was pretty too! Was it for tea? Or did you use it in the recipe?? Sorry if I missed this!

    How very very yummy!! I’ve been addicted to blueberries lately, and lemon is one of my most favorite flavors (and scents, actually), *plus* white chocolate is heavenly, so this cake is most likely PERFECT! I’ll have to find a reason to try it ASAP…

    You did a fabulous job on your cake! I used white chocolate in the frosting and it was fabulous. I love your white chocolate decorations on the side.

    Thanks again for everyone’s nice comments.

    Stephanie come to think about it, I couldn’t find my 9 inch pans the morning I baked it, so I used my 8 inch pans. No wonder mine looks taller! I forgot I used those!

    Jenny, did you bake two 9″ rounds to get these tall layers? I have checked out all of the other Daring Bakers and your cake is by far the tallest. Thanks!

    The cake looks great! I am a big blueberry fan too.

    I finally got mine up, I got a little mixed up on the dates

    Your cake looks great! I was thinking of going with blueberries, but the fresh raspberries just looked so good to me. After looking at your pictures, I’m going to have to try a blueberry cake in the future. Nice touch with the white chocolate.

    I love how tall your cake looks. Mine didn’t turn out like that, even though it still tasted good.

    ok, so I checked out many other daring bakers cakes yesterday and i have to say yours’ was the most beautiful one! and I looked at about 30 of them hoping to find one that even compared to yours’….and nothing. You are the “daring baker”!!

    oh, babycakes! This is amazing!
    White chocolate and blueberries…match made in heaven.
    Where did this cake go, Jenny?
    Did you give it away, or did the boys have at it??
