Daring Bakers Challenge: Dorie Greenspan's Perfect Party Cake
I loved this cake! I've been in a total rush this past month and for the first time put off making the DB challenge until the last minute and it came together beautifully. The flavors I think are perfect for spring and summer. It is light and the lemon flavor is wonderful. I used raspberry seedless jam for the filling and thought it went really well with the lemon and buttermilk.
I didn't do my best with the layers and didn't do anything fancy with the icing, but all that said, my family devoured it. Notice my son in the background waiting to get a taste.
I think next time I wouldn't put the buttercream in the layers, I would just have the jam.
A super big thank you to Morven from Food Art And Random Thoughts for this challenge!
