April has turned out to be a rather hectic and busy month so far. Finding time to bake has been a bit of a challenge and finding time to blog, even more so.
Well, when this Saturday turned out to be a home alone with nothing to do kind of day (this rarely happens), I jumped at the chance to try and tackle my first layer cake.
I use a cake ring and everything! The filling is lemon curd and fresh raspberries, the soak – a simple syrup, and the frosting a meringue butter cream with vanilla bean and a spoon full of lemon curd. I must say, the lemon curd and raspberries filling is a lovely and refreshing combination.
It was a time consuming endeavor, but perfect for a day at home with nothing to do. And oh so yummy too!!!!
