My assistant at work is “Celebrating” her 30th…oops pardon me…Twenty-tenth birthday today.  She didn’t want any fuss…and certainly no “Birthday cake”. (Can you imagine being upset about 30?  I wish I was 30). She did say that although she didn’t want a birthday cake…she wanted a cake LOL.  She requested “that lemon one you make”.  So Last night I got to work on a genoise classique with lemon curd filling, lemoncello in the syrup, and lemon mousseline.  Lemon lemon lemon.  We’ve already eaten about 1/2 of the cake…and there are only three of us.

Bill it looks fabulous!
What good taste your assistant has.
Lemon can’t be beat. The remaining half will disappear just as quickly…....

Ooooo, yum!!!  Genoise and lemon curd mousseline, oh my.  I’d be happy to help you finish the other half…

Funny about turning 30, I dreaded it at the time.  But then 40 was much easier, didn’t bother me at all.

Oooh, that looks tempting! I love how it seems to dazzle with all it’s lemony facets! The lemon curd sounds divine, too. Ahh, all of it. Just send one my way when I turn thirty, ok? *gulp, did I just admit that to all of you?* I’ll pay for overnight shipping! LOL Four years is enough time to start making payments on it!
Seriously now, I also love how you textured the top. It just screams melt-in-your-mouth sophisticated. Lovely creation, and very kind of you might I add.

Oh…and I have the most amazing women working for me.  I"m very very very lucky.  They deserve everything I bake for them…and then some.  I only wish I could afford to pay them more.
