Helpful Hints
Use long tinfoil to wrap the outside. I've made the mistake of trying to use shorter. It still tastes great but it's a little soggy. The water bath is definitely worth the patchke.

I don't put the blueberry topping on the whole thing. I put it on each piece, which makes a great presentation!
