Cherry Blossom Citrus Bliss




Get well, Grandma!!
Lemon Cake with Lemon Cream Cheese Filling.

Lemon has always been my grandmother's favorite flavor.  Lemon meringue to lemon mousse, she has always had a sweet tooth, especially for the yellow citrus.  I created this cake specifically  for her.  Four layers of lemon cake, three layers of lemon cream cheese filling with vanilla butter cream.  I also designed the decor with hand-made gum paste blossoms in variegating shades of pink.



 




Lemon Cream Cheese Filling:
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1 stick ( 8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 pound or 3 and ¾ cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
