I missed y'all! How was your Thanksgiving? We have so much catching up to do. Trust me, even though I wasn't blogging, I was baking. Let's start with my Lemon Whipped Cream Cake. The cake (originally dubbed 'Science Cake') was a request from my brother. He wanted a cake that combined lemon, whipped cream AND cream cheese.
How could I combine freshly made whipped cream, cream cheese and real lemons? What would the flavor be like? Wouldn't the fresh lemon juice just obliterate all the hard work my hand mixer did to fluff up that heavy whipping cream? Science cake, indeed.
Also, I'll note that my brother couldn't care less about the decorative elements on this cake, be they excessive or none at all. Maybe I went for excessive lol.
The end result: a deliciously light, fluffy cake with subtle hints of lemon and cream cheese. The cream cheese helped stabilize the whipped cream and brought the flavors together.
Donald, cutting into the cake. Nonverbal for "you have taken enough pictures".
Sorry I couldn't get fancier shots of the sliced cake, but these pics are making me drool... the icing was light, tart, and surprisingly luscious.
Have you ever made a science cake?
