When I saw this cake in Mary's blog, One Perfect Bite, I was so impressed I just had to try it out. The cake on it's own is not very tasty as shortening is used instead of butter....the secret is in the lemon curd and icing! So you'll really have to ice it before eating. I have adjusted the sweetness according to my taste.
See the mess I'd made with the icing? I am just not good at it...but the taste is so delicious!
Mmmmm....the lemon curd gives the cake a tangy flavor which I like very much....great with a cup of tea.
