I love the colors! I made a couple teeny changes to Sally's Baking Addiction's cake batter and completely omitted the butter from the frosting. And I opted to make cupcakes instead of the layer cake. One of these days I'll do the layer cake, though. It's beautiful.

Preheat oven to 350ºF
On medium speed, cream together butter and sugars.
Add eggs one at a time.
Continue mixing for about 2 minutes.
In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.
Gradually add this mixture to the butter/egg mixture. Mix until combined.
Reduce speed to low. Mix in buttermilk, lemon zest, lemon juice and lemon extract until combined.
Toss fresh blueberries in 1 Tablespoon flour and then fold into the cake batter.
Spoon batter into paper-lined cupcake pans, filling each ¾ full.
Bake until wooden toothpick inserted comes out clean -- about 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool before frosting.
To make the Frosting,
Mix the soften cream cheese on medium speed, add the heavy cream and vanilla.
Reduce speed to low and gradually add powdered sugar until well combined.
Increase speed and mix frosting for about 2-3 minutes.
