(All rice cooker are different. Check the doneness of your cake with a toothpick. If you insert the toothpick and it is clean, the cake is done.)

Once the cake is done cooking, remove from rice cooker and let it sit for 15 minutes to cool down. Flip over and out and cut in half. Chill in the refrigerator so it's easier to ice.

Combine frosting ingredients in a bowl. Mix until smooth.

Start with the bottom half of the cake, spread some of the frosting and add a few blueberries. Top with the other half of the cake. Frost the cake however you like. Add some chocolate shavings (optional). Enjoy!
