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).
