Blueberry Buttercream Birthday Cake

Blueberry Buttercream Cake

For my boyfriend’s birthday a couple of weeks ago we had a barbecue at our place and invited some friends over. And as you might have guessed, I made some cakes for the occasion. I went with a chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream, as well as a chocolate cake covered in my delicious blueberry buttercream. It had been a while since I made the blueberry buttercream and I was instantly reminded why I used to make it so much. It is just SO dang good. And friends, this is a perfect buttercream for the summer – I strongly urge you all to try it for yourself to see! You can find my recipe for the BEST blueberry buttercream HERE. In the photos below you’ll also see a small gluten free chocolate torte – that was actually not made by me, I just piped on some buttercream to the top. I had forgotten just how many of our friends were GF and I didn’t have enough time to whip-up another cake, so I ran to Whole Foods right before the party started to pick one up because EVERYONE at a birthday party should be able to eat birthday cake!

    Made this recently with strawberries – holy flavor! I think next time I’d try swiss buttercream though, since it was a bit aggressively sweet for my tastes.
