If you read 34 things I’d like to do this year….you probably remember reading that i want to make a layer cake…well, not only did i make a lemon layer cake with lemon cream cheese frosting…i made a RAINBOW LEMON LAYER CAKE WITH CREAM CHEESE FROSTING….
i used my famous pudding cake recipe and tripled it….you can find the recipe here at Playdates, Princess Drinks and Pistachio Cake , but instead of pistachio cake, i used white cake/pudding/yogurt for 4 layers and a lemon cake/lemon pudding/lemon yogurt for 2 layers
~the reason i didn’t use lemon throughout is because i used food coloring for each layer (6 total) and the lemon has a yellowish tint so i knew i would only be able to use lemon on the yellow and green layer
so for the red, orange, blue and purple layers i used white cake…and i got 2 layers for each batch….
- 1 carton cream cheese (softened)
- 1/2 cup butter (softened)
- 2 tsp lemon zest
- 2 T lemon juice
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3 cups powdered sugar
blend all together with a mixer until smooth and then put a light layer of frosting on each layer of cake….almost like the glue that holds the layers together
now, how can i get it there safe….any ideas?
~here is a picture of it the next day…safe and sound in our tummies…it was delightful..i highly recommend making it…the 3 little girls loved it as much as all the big kids…it was just so happy you couldn’t help but smile….and so delicous!
