Cherries seem to be the only ones who get to have a jubilee, but there is no reason blueberries can't have a fire party if they want to...

This dessert of lemony cake, fresh blueberries and ice cream make a great finale to any summer picnic or BBQ!

Will the fire damage the plate in any way?

Nope, alcohol burns at a low temperature, so the plates should be safe...unless it is paper : )

Is there a reason why the blue piped icing is blue, but the rest is white? Just food coloring added before piping or what?

This looks awesome, definitely going to be trying it.

Just food coloring...I didn't call that out.

Hope you have fun making them!
