I consider myself a better baker than chef. Something about being able to
mix a bunch of delicious fruits, chocolates and other confections and
turn it into a delectable dessert really strike my fancy.
I bake mostly cookies and so many of the desserts that can be made are a mystery to me.
Enter the ever elusive cake.
I am guilty of "baking" a cake by opening the box and calling myself
a pastry chef.
Which is why I had to make one from scratch.
Just to say I've done it.
What I made: lemon cake, with lemon curd cream cheese filling and lemon buttercream frosting.
Yeah, I was feeling sassy.
It took about three of us to produce this little beast and still
took about five hours.
And I used all of those lemons. It was incredible.
It was so rich, creamy and delightful.
But after all the work, I kind of hated the cake, I wanted it out of my sight.
So I had a tiny sliver and sent it away to multiple friends
that offered to take it off my hands.
And in conclusion: Rachel with the curd dripping off her hands, since she was eating it
