Blueberry & white chocolate cake

I absolutely love baking cakes, and winter holiday time is just the time to prepare some. When it’s cold outside, and I can’t see the street from the windows in my room because they’re covered in snow, that’s when I just want to lock myself up in the kitchen and bake cakes the whole day….
