I asked Robert what type of birthday cake he would like and he wanted as the title suggests.
I found the following recipe on the internet and set to work - Lemon Drizzle Cake
First challenge - make lemon curd - easier than I expected.
Next, bake the cake - problem - only have a 9" springform tin not 8" :(
Well, I made it but am not 100pc happy with it.
I think it would have helped if I had the correct sized tin - note to self - buy one!
However, here it is:
The filling is Marscapone swirled with the home made lemon curd.
I dusted the top with icing sugar but you can still see where it stuck to the plate when turning it.
The recipe, once the lemon syrup is added, makes for a very soft cake so not easy to handle, it also darkens the edges making it look a tad burnt but I assure you it's not.
May try them as cupcakes???
The cake stand is my latest purchase from Pampered Chef - so glad I did as they are retiring it this month!
Taste test to come, just off to eat dinner first.
Again, Happy Birthday to my beloved Husband
