For some reason this post has been a LONG time coming! I just can’t quite seem to bring myself to write it.
I think it’s because it has been sooo hot. Seriously. 90’s. This Nordic girl can’t handle the heat.
That’s about all I have to say. Tasting Tuesdays is tomorrow and I made some delicious little things from Super Natural Every Day by Heidi Swanson. Exciting!
And now, without further ado, here are some more pictures of cake (which I do wish I was eating right now). I hope you’re keeping cool out there!
Lemon Lavender Cake
I combined a few recipes from the wonderful Sweetapolita here! The cake is from her Triple Lemon Blueberry Cake and the frosting is from her Lavender Lemon Cake. I made a lemon simple syrup and brushed it over the cake layers before frosting. I made smaller versions of the rose looping technique from I am Baker’s rose cake tutorial. Next time I’d make a cake that was more lemon-y–this one didn’t have enough zing for me. Also, the frosting was a bit too airy for good piping (you can see air bubbles above) and I’d use more lavender next time as the flavor was quite subtle.
Also, anyone have any tips for keeping cakes? This one dried out a bit in the fridge and I wasn’t pleased with it!
