This cake is inspired by my grandfather Bill, he was a blueberry man. As a kid I would pick blueberries from three large blueberry bushes that he had, they seemed like trees to me. One of my biggest regrets in life was that I never learned to make his blueberry wine. It was always an intriguing sight to see my grandpa poking blueberries one by one with a sewing needle and dropping them into a bottle. Maybe one day I’ll figure it out. So back to the cake, it has a blueberry marzipan cake, then lavender mousse and blueberry cheesecake, all surrounded with a thin almond cake. It is topped with some white chocolate covered almonds, fresh blueberries, and vanilla chantilly. I think my grandpa would like it.
