Lemon Raspberry Cake

15 Sep

September 15th, 2011

I’m a fan of lemon flavored anything, and the more tangy it is, the better.  To my surprise, I realized that a lot of people actually like lemon as well. So after making lemon cupcakes and lemon cake pops, and both being a hit among friends, I decided to make a lemon cake, in celebration of a birthday. Since berries have been pretty popular at farmer’s market recently, I picked up some raspberries and blueberries to go with the cake.

I made a puree with the raspberries to spread between the layers. After frosting the entire cake with (delicious!) lemon buttercream, I used the blueberries to decorate the top. The cake reminded me of 4th of July because of the red, white, and blue colors.

The cake turned out to be one of my favorites so far, and I plan to experiment with other desserts using lemon, so stay tuned!

Happy Birthday, Amy!

Chocolate Strawberry Mousse Cake

The last time I made a chocolate mousse cake, I discovered how much I liked chocolate mousse, so I decided to make a similar one.  But this time around, I filled the center of the cake with strawberry slices, which I picked up the day before at the farmer’s market.

I made this to give to my friend, who was having her birthday celebration at a clubhouse. She’s a big chocolate fan, so when she saw the cake, she was very surprised.

Topped with fresh strawberries. Lightly drizzled with caramel sauce.
