For the lemon cake, I used a recipe from the amazing Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten. It's an easy recipe. Although for the cake batter, I didn't use buttermilk. and made a lemon buttercream. For a cake like this, I probably would have also make a lemon curd too, if I had more time. I would have taken more pictures of the whole process, but I didn't think I would be sharing it on my blog since the cake was rushed. Sorry guys for the lack of details!
The cake will look a bit glossy since it is painted, and has some water on the gels. But it actually dries and looks really cool when it's done. Honestly, I was pleasantly surprised with the cake. Mostly because I was working against time, and I hadn't truly planned on the cake. I seriously just made it.
