I've come up with what seems like quite an awesome idea for my boyfriend's birthday cake - however, I'm not overly fond of cake myself and while I'm quite handy with cupcakes, I haven't really delved into cake-making before. Basically, I would like to make a cake similar to the Strawberry Cake shared in a previous post (thanks to coldagain). I'd like to use blueberries instead of strawberries, but I'm not sure what cake to use. I was feeling adventurous and thinking rum cake, but I don't really drink rum so I'm not sure if it would go! Does anyone have any thoughts on this, or a favourite cake recipe that works well in layered cakes?
Thank you for any advice you can give me! =)
