*I found the gorgeous lemon blueberry cake at Sweetapolia. I didn't follow their directions mainly because I didn't have everything on hand that it called for. I took a shortcut with the yellow cake mix. haha
The lemon curd was quite different than a lemon meringue pie filling. I think next time I'd prefer using a pie filling recipe.
