I joined Daring Bakers and my first challenge was "The Perfect Party Cake"
We were allowed to play around with the recipe as much as we wanted but I stuck pretty close to it. I did use lemon curd as one of my filling layers instead of doing it all raspberry.
To be quite honest I thought the icing was a little heavy for the cake. I had never had a meringue based icing before. It was too buttery.
My layers didn't raise too much but i am now thinking that they aren't supposed to. I know that I cannot cut even layers now!
This cake was fun and it didn't last long at all! I wish I had done a different design on top. Maybe just a raspberry circle.
