Rosy Topped Cakes
This cake is gorgeous, no? Yet, it seems approachable.
My sort of style. Not perfectly polished.
It also seems somewhat doable for someone like me.
(Someone like me is a one who can't frost a cake very well.)
Gillian & I made a lemon cake yesterday afternoon.
(Remember the no nap thing?
I managed to have a good attitude about it.
She, on the other hand, had a total tired melt down of an evening.
Seems she could still use the occasional nap...)
So, the lemon cake.
We have tons of lemons on our little backyard tree.
I saw that rosy cake idea & wanted to give it a try.
We had everything thing we needed to put this cake together,
except baking powder.
Did you know that you can make your own baking powder?
You mix 2 parts Cream of Tarter with 1 part Baking Soda.
It only stays fresh for a couple weeks, though.
I happened to have a bunch of Cream of Tarter.
So, we were able to pull a cake together.
I whipped cream & loaded it into a piping bag
& went to work on the rosy top.
It was fun!
And, although mine looks sloppy, I still like it.
I may have to give it another try later this week,
if I can find enough people to feed cake to.
Linking up with Life Made Lovely Monday at Heather's.
