I've spent the evening baking and decorating a cake for my fiance's father, and I can't resist sharing. It's the first one I've done like this...



It's a lemon cake, with red currant jelly between the layers (I thought the tartness would go well with the lemon flavour), and lemon buttercream frosting. I decorated the rim with candied lemon rind that I made this evening --- experimental, but more or less successful. (It seems to take a lot less rind and a lot more sugar to get the result I wanted than my cookbook claimed... oh well!)

Oh lord... I love lemony things and I want a slice of your cake!  It looks soooo good. Boxed mix, or from scratch?

Yum,

Kara

The cake was a mix, I have to admit --- I was short on time, and wanted to concentrate on the decorating. The icing was a simple no-cook buttercream, with lemon juice and lemon rind. I candied the lemon peel for the decoration, too --- boil thin slices in sugar syrup (1/2 c. sugar and 1/2 c. water) for about 3 mins, then drain WELL and toss the pieces in some more white sugar to coat.
