Woody’s Lemon Luxury Layer Cake



This cake looks like happiness, non?

Woody’s Lemon Luxury Layer Cake

Because it is. And it tastes like happiness, too.

That's what you get with two bags of white chocolate chips and 17 eggs. And it’s not very sweet, either-- just amazingly rich, buttery, and creamy, with the perfect amount of lemon. The cake itself is white chocolate with lemon zest; the icing is a white chocolate and lemon buttercream (and the creamiest icing I’ve ever tasted); the cake is layered with said buttercream and a lemon curd. Served at room temperature, it just melts in your mouth.

I had a whole slew of snarky crap I was going to spew about making it, but tasting it gave me amnesia for the process. It was a bit labour intensive—making the curd, the buttercream, as well as the cake (there were a lot of wait times for each). A few blogs I’ve read have just skipped making the curd and bought it. But then this wouldn’t be leannebakes. It would be leannetakesshitoutofajar.

RLB is a goddess. If the rest of the cakes in Rose's Heavenly Cakes taste half this good, I'll... well, I don't know but I think I'll be fairly happy. (And maybe start working out, too).
