Blueberry Cake with White Chocolate Pudding Icing
I’m not going to lie. When I picked up a quart of beautiful plump Michigan blueberries at Saturday’s farmer’s market, I wasn’t sure how I would use them.
Don’t get me wrong, I was confident they would get put to some delicious use.
More times than not, it’s Scott who comes up with the really fast, really easy and really delicious recipes here on Platter Talk. He’s the one people describe as funny, smart, handsome, etc. etc. They call me “interesting.” You get the picture, right? There are however exceptions to all rules, and for once, I’m the one who came up with this chilled summer dessert. Likely, I took my cue from one of Scott’s former hits, our Cottage Cake from last year.
That was a big hit on our site and I think we may have another, right here, with this Blueberry Cake with White Chocolate Pudding Icing.
This box cake is infused with fresh blueberries, then topped with a pudding-based icing. Pudding always tastes best when chilled and in August, almost everything tastes better when chilled. This Blueberry Cake with Chocolate Pudding Icing tastes divine, when chilled. It goes together for just a few bucks and is filled with the fresh taste of blueberries and the fun and decadent flavor of pudding. White. Chocolate. Pudding. To be more precise. Layered or in sheet form, this one will taste great either way. Try this Blueberry Cake with White Chocolate Pudding this summer and let us know how you like it! -Dan

Icing this cake is not necessarily a "neat" job! Initially, the "icing" will slide down the sides of the cake (if layered.) Be prepared to have a spoon to retrieve and redistribute whatever icing collects at the base.
As you spread it, the icing gradually thickens to become more manageable.
