Lemony Birthday Cake


Publishing this delicious cake is long overdue, as I made it last September! Nonetheless, here it finally is - the birthday cake I made my dear friend Charlotte. The lemon sponge and frosting recipe was taken from a cupcake recipe in The Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook, but the two sponges were sandwiched together with lemon curd and whipped cream, as advised in Nigella Lawson's recipe for lemon meringue cake in her fabulous book 'Feast'.

This turned out to be one of those rare cakes that is delightfully light, and thus extremely moreish. Both Charlotte and I have a love of lemon and this was just another wonderful use of the flavour to the max.

My next target? Lemon meringue pie...

Charlotte
