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!
