Victoria cake is a classic type of butter based pound cake, that is filled with buttercream. This specific cake combines the tartness of lemon and blueberries with the sweetness that is coming from the cake and the blueberry filling at the top of the cake. It was an absolute hit. Lemonade is actually used instead of sugar syrup so it adds more to the overall lemon flavors.
