Blueberry Cream Cake

This Blueberry Cream Cake is made up of layers of vanilla cake, homemade blueberry jam and fluffy mascarpone cream frosting and surrounded by blueberries. Lotsa and lotsa blueberries. I almost called this cake Blueberry Dream Cake.  Why?  It’s so loaded with blueberries that it is a blueberry lover’s dream come true.
I just love blueberries and the idea of blueberries covering all the sides of the cake has been floating in my mind for quite some time.  I was just waiting for the season to start when blueberries are in abundance (and ergo cheap).
