Almond Lemon Cake – Cake Party 1/8

Posted by

This cake is fresh but still nice and sweet. If you don’t do lemon cakes often be prepared that this one might surprise you with the balance of flavors and sweetness.

 

This one isn’t the most typical what comes to the shape either. If you prefer typical shaped cakes with a lot of complicated decorations. The flavors of this one will probably work that way too but personally I enjoyed the unique shape of this one – it was also nice to do a bit more simple cake for a change.

 

 

Note: This cake is part of a cake party cake series including 7 sweet and 2 savory cakes seen below
