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

Blueberry Christmas Cake 

I prepared three other cakes, which I hope you will look at. Two are Pistachio and Ricotta cakes; one is a Mocha Apricot cake, my husband’s favorite. This blueberry cake is a lovely Christmas Cake. The secret of this cake is the combination of Mascarpone cream and Pastry cream, making it soft, delicious, and unique.

Christmas is a moment of joy and happiness for everyone, but above all, it is a moment of family gatherings. With the arrival of Christmas, our homes become more cheerful and sunnier, with thousands of lights coming from our multi-colored Christmas trees and a beautifully decorated dinner table.
