Blueberry Christmas Cake

Blueberry Christmas Cake is one of my favorite holiday cakes.  Two Pistachio Cake layers with alternating mascarpone cream with fresh blueberries fruit and pastry cream (Crema Pasticcera).


I prepared other 3 cakes, that I hope you looked at, 2 Pistachio and Ricotta cakes and my husband’s favorite cake Moka Apricot cake. This blueberry cake is an absolute beautiful Christmas Cake. The secret of this  cake is the combination of Mascarpone cream and Pastry cream, making it soft, delicious, and unique.
