  1. Preheat the oven to 180C (160C fan-forced). Grease and line a 20cm x 30cm lamington pan.

  6. For the icing, combine the sifted icing mixture and approximately 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. Stir to combine and remove any lumps. When the cake is completely cold, drizzle the icing over the cake and decorate with extra blueberries. Non-iced cake, suitable to freeze. Not
