This past fall, my friend’s parents were celebrating their 35th
wedding anniversary. She wanted
Limoncello Cake (made with homemade limoncello!) with Blueberry frosting –
which worked out perfectly, because her parents’ wedding colors were blue and
Because the cake had to be made several days before the
event, I ended up swapping out the blueberry cream cheese frosting with
blueberry buttercream frosting.
To do so, I added the blueberry sauce to Basic Buttercream –
be warned, the buttercream will need to beat for much longer than a typical
buttercream, because the juice from the berries wants to weep and make a mess
of everything. I recommend mixing the
frosting, then setting it aside for 15 minutes and restirring to take care of
any problem areas.
I also used Royal Icing roses instead of fresh, also because
the cake was picked up 2 ½ days before the event.
