Let Them Eat Cake …

The title refers to my family eating yet another cake to celebrate my parents’ 70th birthdays  rather than the much disputed quote allegedly made by Marie Antoinette! The cake took a ridiculous 8 hours to make – baking, making the decorations, making the lemon curd to sandwich it all together and then the final arrangement of the decorations. The heat that we have been experiencing here in the UK did not really help with the latter but I got there in the end:


It was seemingly enjoyed by all, it was particularly lovely to be able to share it with my Canadian cousin and his family.

  1. Such a gorgeous cake – and lemon no less, my favorite! Your petals on the decorative cake flowers are so perfect and consistent. I can’t imagine how one even creates icing flowers this lovely! Happy birthday to your parents.
