Lemon Layer Cake: 2 Lucy Lucia: 0


Well, for the second time, I've tried to make this devil of a cake. Pictured above, it looks passable. Pictured below, you can see it in all of its "Leaning Tower of Pisa-ness". It's that tricky lemon curd. It fools you in to thinking that it's firm enough to hold up the layers and then it laughs at you and starts to bulge out the sides. sigh.

I still have an unending love for all things lemon flavored though, and it was quite yummy.

It looks delicious, and leaning or not, I am sure everyone enjoyed it :-)

JAPRA - It was pretty tasty. But the presentation...ugh.

Laura - when you coming back up? Would it be sooner if I promise to have something waiting for you on the table??

I keep thinking about coming back all the time when you post these food pics. :) Seriously though, my vacation is booked through March with time that Avery is off from school, but it will start over after that! I cannot wait to come back!

maybe if you put wooden skewers in it to hold it up? Still looks good to me, though. Wavey candles fix everything!
