Lemon Blueberry Layer Cake

I made this cake on Friday; it was a huge success and garnered rave reviews. My only modification was to add a lot more blueberries; I think I could have probably used even more. Thanks for the delicious recipe.


Sunshine-sweet lemon layer cake dotted with juicy blueberries and topped with lush cream cheese frosting. You can use either fresh or frozen blueberries in this cake. If using frozen, no need to thaw.
