Two weekends ago we had our first guest over for dinner at our new home. I roasted huge artichokes in the oven, baked focaccia bread that would make Italians proud, and served a version of my Penne Primavera.
But of course, a dinner party is never complete without dessert. I baked a Triple Lemon Cake complete with fresh lemon buttercream and homemade lemon curd. To die for.
I used Annalise Roberts' recipe which she calls "Lemon Layer Cake." The lemon flavored cake alone was so light and delicate... this cake is going to become a regular in my baking repertoire.
I also made some simple yellow Apple Blossoms out of royal icing. I think they add a simple yet elegant touch!
I'll gladly make this for whomever visits us first out in California!
