Happy belated spring equinox!

1 Apr

Or Ostara.

Or Eostre.

Or whatever. As long as there is cake, I don’t care. And this is the mother of all cakes. A lemon biscuit, lemon buttercream cake with lemon curd and meringues. From what I recall, it containes 16 eggs, more than a pound of butter and the same amount of sugar (if you are not scared, go here to read the complete recipe). Isn’t it pretty? I am planning on taking it with me this afternoon when we visit Richard’s family to give all of us a major case of diabetes. ^^

Some detail. I think the two-colored meringues are pretty, and they are extremely easy to make! OF course I could have done a better job smoothing the cake, but I have extremely sore butt muscles (take your minds out f the gutter! ^^ ) and avoid standing for longer periods. Also I ran out of yellow color before the cream had the intended color, but I think that won’t keep us from enjoying every last bite!
