Lemon Blueberry Marble Cake

DSC01354For Christmas Dinner this year, I made dessert.  I couldn’t decide between Devil’s Food Cake, Triple Chocolate Cake or Lemon Blueberry Marble Cake from Sky High:  Irresistible Triple-Layer Cakes.  Michael opted for the Lemon Blueberry Marble Cake.  I couldn’t argue since I love anything lemon!  (I also love anything chocolate so it was going to be a win-win situation regardless)  The blueberry-lemon preserves was SOOO yummy!  And the cake layers came out level thanks to my water-soaked bands that I wrapped around each cake pan.  The actual cake tasted wonderfully lemony and fluffy and light!  I made the frosting at my sister’s house and forgot to bring my instant thermometer so I guessed when the sugar/water got to soft-ball stage.  I figured I got it pretty close since it developed into soft balls while I was beating it into the slightly beaten eggs.  I was worried but it turned out fabulous if I do say so myself (and I just did)!  I would definitely make this again!  I obviously need to develop some frosting skills but it all tasted good in the end anyways!
