This is evidence how much I love baking. It also shows how much I like total waste.
First, I made two layers of heart cakes…and failed to do anything with one of them. Then I also failed to freeze some leftover cooked frosting. The result is this first cake. The cooked frosting pipes and colors fine.
The second cake was is yellow cake with lemon zest. It is two layers of 8 inch with 2.5 tbls of zest. Not enough I think. I found cake a little crumbly. I am sure I did have it in the oven too long. I have to say I really like CI’s yellow cake and have to see how it scales…or bake it again and see if I like it. The frosting is IMBC with lemon juice and oil. I definitely think I’d prefer to make lemon mousseline with curd. The partakers enjoyed the cake and thought it was good. No matter what, scratch baking especially Rose’s are much better than what people are accustomed to.
