Blueberry Stack Cake

"This is a recipe I got from a friend's grandmother; everyone who has ever tried it has wanted the recipe. They're also usually surprised at how easy it is to make; they think it takes alot more work than it does. If you don't like blueberries, you can try other types of fruit; one of the ladies at work told me she tried it with raspberries and it was just as good."

    Does this have to be made with five 8" pans? Or could it be made with two 8" pans instead?

    This cake is pure amazing! My husband had been asking for a blueberry cake for a few weeks so I got online to find a recipe. I'm so happy that this is the recipe that I stubled upon! Easy ain't the word for making this cake, and it's so delicious...a big hit with all our friends and family! This will definitely be a keeper and will be made very often at my house. I'm thinking about next time using strawberries instead of blueberries just to switch things up. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! GOD BLESS!

    Absolutely fabulous. I'm not even much of a blueberry fan, but I made it for my dad for his birthday because he loves them. I loved the cake and so did he. I would like to try it with raspberry pie filling next time though I think. It looks so pretty when you cut it open too! I love that there are so many layers. It makes the cake more special. Thanks for posting the keeper!

    What a great cake. Not only do you get a delicious cake, but a recipe for the best cream cheese frosting you've ever tasted. I only used two 9 inch cake pans since those are the only cake pans I have, and it still came out wonderful. I also could not put the lid on my cake dish because it was so tall! I just spread the remaining blueberries over the top of cake instead of mixing it with the outer frosting. This is one of those cakes that people go "ooh" when they see it and "mmmm" when they eat it. Nothing like adding a stick of butter to a boxed cake mix to kick things up a notch.
