    7.  Fold in the blueberries and pour into your greased cake tins.
    8. Bake in your preheated oven for 35-40 minutes until just baked through.
    9. Allow the cake to cook for 5-10 minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack. Allow to cool completely before frosting.
    10. To make the frosting; beat together the cream cheese, butter and Nestlé Milkybar Dessert Topping. Beat until fluffy.
    11. Add in the icing sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice. Mix until combined.
    12. Increase the speed and add the cream. Whip until light and fluffy.
    13. Once the cake has cooled ice the top of one cake round on a platter or cake board. Top with the other cake round upside down. Continue to frost the cake on the top and on the sides. Garnish with lemon slices and blueberries before serving.
    14. Store in the fridge until serving.

     

    Note:

    All of the Nestlé Professional dessert toppings and spreads help create a moist sponge when being used in baking. They are oil based and react well with the acidic products creating moisture.
