My nephew's 5th birthday is this weekend. He wants a blueberry cake!

I have a recipe for a blueberry pound cake, but want to give him something lighter. Was thinking about just putting blueberries into WASC, but with the high liquid content of the blueberries, I don't know how that would turn out.

Andybody have a good recipe or suggestions on how to make it work with WASC?

I just read here the other day that Carlo (Cake Boss) puts frozen blueberries in his bb cake and they don't breakdown

Thanks, Preppie. That's my baby Sascha, who is actually 4 now.

In case anybody else ever has the blueberry cake predicament - What I tried first seemed to work. I used fresh blueberries, whole, and the WASC recipe (I used vanilla instead of almond flavoring). Baked 2-8" layers.

The blueberries burst at some point during the baking process, makig it look like a blueberry muffin, but it didn't affect the consistency of the cake.

The blueberries didn't totally sink to the bottom, though they were predominantly on the bottom side of the cake. So what I did was torted those 2 layers another time, and flipped them before icing between them so the blueberries were more evenly distributed. Quick fix to that problem!
