the most ambitious cake i ever made.
2 boxes of vanilla cake mix
2 boxes of vanilla frosting
4 cups of blueberries
eggs, water & oil (as directed on the box)
* i substitute apple sauce for oil
1. in a large bowl mix all of the ingredients together as directed on the box.
or make a cake from scratch if you have time for that. (i do not)
2. i ended up using four cups of blueberries in total -
but simmered them on the stove in 3 different batches.
I threw in some water & sugar cubes initially but it was probably unnecessary.
cook the berries on the stove until the you see a deep purple liquid.
3. slowly add the blueberries to the cake mix until you get your desired shade of blue.
pour into a round cake pan & bake. repeat the process for all layers adding more blueberries to each layer. cook time will increase for each batch. my top layer was very dense with blueberries.
this cake took like 4 hours to make because i was rotating cake pans (having only 2).
i was trying to have it done in time for an oscar party and probably could have cooked some layers for a little bit longer. it ended up falling over after i cut into it. but does not mean it was not AMAZING!
it was AMAZING. definitely needs some tweaking but it's a pretty simple concept.
