Pipe some frosting around the top rim of the first layer so you have a type of barrier that will keep the lemon filling from oozing out the sides of the cake. (See above pic.)

Fill the middle with the Summertime Lemon Curd and place the top cake layer in place.

Carefully frost the sides and top with the Sunny Lemon Buttercream and garnish with a few blueberries.  Keep leftovers in refrigerator (if you have any!)
