Does anyone have any recipes for wedding cakes or regular cakes that have blueberry filling?

The best cake mix to use is Duncan Hines white cake mix. There is actually instructions on the inside of the box on how to assemble wedding cakes and how many cake mixes you will need for each layer.You can make an even richer cake by using buttermilk in place of the water called for. When you remove the cake from the pan let it cool slightly and then warm up some apricot jam or raspberry with no seeds. Paint it in a thin covering to seal in crumbs. Let it stand for a couple hours before you frost it. You can also do this by using a thinned buttercream frosting. The usual frosting for a wedding cake is made with shortening, powdered sugar, vanilla and milk…whole milk, cream, half and half or evaporated. A buttercream frosting is the same, except you substitute REAL butter for the shortening. You can use half shortening and half butter if you like. The amounts of each will depend on how many cakes you are making. For a large batch of either, I would use 1 cup shortening or butter, 1 tablesoon vanilla, 2 pounds of powdered sugar and milk or whatever type of milk based liquid you are using. Mix the butter and vanilla together. Add 10x sugar alternately with milk until you get the desired stiffness. You will want a stiff frosting for a wedding cake. For a cake with blueberry filling, you can use a can of pie filling spread between the cake layers. Hope this helps! Good Luck!
