3 cakes in June and July

Aly and DH had b-days in June and Justin’s was in July.  And I just now have time to post about it.  Been awful busy.  Aly wanted a black forest cake so I attempted to make one.  Turned out pretty good.  She said it was definitely better homemade. I made choc mousse for DH again.  And this time I put brandy on the whole cake instead of half  like last year.  Justin wanted a  forest cake but with blueberries.  I made him  one like a blackforest cake but with blueberries instead of cherries and used a blueberry cake recipe instead of choc sponge.  Fresh blueberries were sprinkled on top of the batter b/f baking.  The “blueberry”  forestcake had 4 layers of cake with cream in between and frosted with cream cheese frosting.  He was so tickled by seeing blueberries on his cake.  For some reason I couldn’t find fresh blueberries that week and had to go to 3 stores to find some.  Will post the recipes when I have time.
