The Cake That Kicked My Ass!
This cake was beyond a challenge. I can't even begin to list all the things that went wrong with it! The final product was pretty good though and the clients never suspected that their cake was the reason for me pulling my hair out all day! It was for a 50th wedding anniversary. They requested a lemon cake so I made a lemon pound cake and layered it with lemon mousseline filling, a thin layer of Italian Buttercream on the outside and then covered it in Fondant. I made royal icing flowers and painted the edges of the petals with edible gold shimmer dust to finish. It turned out to be a beautiful cake in the end but I will always remember it as the cake that kicked my ass!
