Lemon Blueberry Cake

When you are short on time, Sandra Lee's Semi-Homemade recipes are the best!  I just watched this episode on the Food Network and she put this gorgeous cake together really fast.

Gorgeous cake . . . and I can almost taste the wonderful lemon flavors.

EPISODE: Grilling on the Mississippi


    • 2 (8-inch) round store-bought (bakery) yellow or white cake layers
    • 1/3 cup frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
    • 2 teaspoons lemon extract, divided
    • 2 (12-ounce) cans cream cheese flavored frosting
    • Fresh mint sprigs
    • Fresh blueberries
    • Lemon slices, quartered


Use a knife to slice cake layers in half horizontally. 

Use a pastry brush to brush each layer with lemonade concentrate; set aside. 

Stir 1 teaspoon of lemon extract into each can of frosting; set aside. 

To assemble cake: frost and stack the cake layers on top of each other.

Decorate cake with clusters of mint sprigs, blueberries, and quartered lemon slices.
