My youngest’s birthday came and went without much fanfare this month: She was 13 last year and we made a big splash for that.
To my horror, however, I realized that I’d not made a celebration birthday cake for her as we were out of town the weekend of her actual birthday.
To make amends, I made a spectacular Lemon Cake for her midweek as a surprise. It was light, fluffy, but – at the same time – rich with a cheesecake-y flavored frosting. My type of cake because it was not too sweet and still had a lemony-bite — much like a lemon bar.
The Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting was the perfect accompaniment to the Lemon Cake
Presented said cake to youngest, who tried a mouthful, pulled a face and said: “I only really like chocolate cake. Can you make me a chocolate cake with chocolate icing next time?”
Perhaps this is more for adult tastebuds. I thought it was delectable.
Judge for yourself. Recipe here: Meyer Lemon Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting.
