FULL SIZE CAKE ALERT!!! It seems like months since we’ve got to make any proper cakes at C&D… Oh wait – it is months since we’ve got to make any full size cakes at C&D! But never fear – Sally’s back with a PROPER CAKE for you guys. And cakes don’t come much more proper than this: A delicious fresh lemon sponge, lemon curd, lemon buttercream and TOASTED Swiss Meringue icing! If you’re pushed for time you can always just stick with the sponge and buttercream and you’ve still got yourself a banging lemon cake, but I’d recommend giving the full cake a go if you can! As always, let us know how you get on, and don’t forget to tag me (@cupcakejemma) and Sally (@sallydells) on Instagram so we can see your bakes, and use the hashtag #cupcakejemma so we can see what you’ve been up to!
