This cake is the second of the five of my series of Girl Scout cookie cakes. I've been wanting to make a lemon cake for some time now but I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. I wasn't sure how many people actually like lemon cake. Boy was I hit with a huge suprise! I had so many people comment on how lemon was they're favorite flavor. I brought the extra slices to work and I was the most popular person at the office that day. Everyone loved it, it was gone before lunch time!
I am so in love with the way this cake came out. The flavors are exactly how I imagined it. The cake is light and fluffy with a slight lemon flavor. The lemon curd is tart and the cookies give the cake some texture. The cream cheese frosting and white chocolate ganache give the cake enough sweetness to blanance out all the tart. Oh and did I mention that I am so happy with the decor as well! It simple yet sophisticated and goes perfectly with my new Hearth & Hand cake stand Greg got me.
