Lemon Diversion – part 2

     Happy Birthday K! 

     Okay.  Below are the results of the recipe, Ina Garten’s Lemon Yogurt Cake, subbing sour cream for the yogurt and baking it into layers instead of a loaf.  The cake turned out with a moist, firm, tight crumb with a wonderful lemon flavor.  It was a bit denser than I wanted for the fillings but was a tasty cake.  It would’ve been perfect without a filling of any kind and covered in a poured fondant for a finish for decorating.  Otherwise, this is ideal for a tea or luncheon.

     The sheet cake I made with this recipe (mentioned in a previous post) will be used for petit fours with a poured fondant finish.

All the tiers are complete with 3 coats of buttercream and this next set will be covered in rolled fondant.

Using tiers that have had 3 coats of buttercream applied, these tiers will be given a poured fondant application.

Please, remember that tiers should not be frozen…cool is okay, just not frozen…when applying poured fondant.

Video tutorials in the works!

The first video tutorials, from me, will be on miniature cakes.  You’ll be able to see various techniques I use in making them.

If you have a suggestion for a future video tutorial on cake/cookie decorating or dessert making please chime in.
