We used lime curd because that is what we had on hand. The original recipe calls for 3 Tb. blueberry preserves. I wanted to use fresh blueberries so I made the thickened blueberry sauce. My sister thought the cake would be better with regular lemon butter cream frosting. She added shortening and more powdered sugar to lighten and fluff the frosting.
