Final Step--Cake

Good Morning to all who visit. This is the last step of our cake, and I am so happy you have followed me along on this fun cake making adventure. A few years ago, my husband wanted me to make a special cake for my daughter, and I did not how or where to start, so my husband bought me a cake decorating kit at Michael's, and in the box this frosting spreader came with it. I frost all my cakes with it now, it makes for a nice smooth look. I am sure you can pick one of these up at any store for a few dollars--if not use a butter knife. :0)
Don't worry if some of the cake stayed in the pan, or it doesn't look real nice, the frosting hides all mistakes. Start by putting a good amount of frosting on the first cake (do you notice it is the backside of the cake, I did not turn it over) and frost it all around the middle, don't worry about the sides--the sides are done last. Yummy-->
Then take the second cake and flip it over onto the first cake-->
Start frosting the top and then work it all along the sides, until it is all covered up.
Great job!! It is all covered up and looks great--->
Take a lemon and cut it in rounds and then cut the rounds in half--try and cut the lemon thin------> (remove seeds too;)
Line the lemons all around the edge of the cake, you can even put one on the top of the cake--or do what Elizabeth suggested, a sprig of mint on the top--I bet the green looks beautiful
Ta-Da---all done.


We did it. The cake is moist and delicious and the lemon frosting is so refreshing for summer. I am so happy I was able to do this for the Ladies Finishing School, and please if there are any questions don't hesitate to ask. I hope you all have a fantastic Thursday xoxox
