Scratch the imperfections of the bowl and beat it until smooth. Place a layer of cake on a serving plate and cover it with a thin layer of lemon sour cream. Place the blueberry cheesecake layer and cover with a thin layer of frosting. Finally, cover with the second layer of cake and brush the cake with the remaining icing. Garnish with lemon wedges and fresh berries as often as you like. Put the cake in the fridge for about 45 minutes before slicing, generally the cake may ruin itself while slicing.
