I used the recipe exactly except I added lemon zest to the mix before adding the dry ingredients.
This is the first time I have made this type of buttercream and it is definitely for special days only, it has a luxurious meringue and quite a bit of butter, but as soon as we tasted it...
we all loved it!!!
Especially nice with 5 Senses fresh coffee we picked up from our special friends this morning, I wish we could have shared some of these cakes with you guys!!
We heart coffee.
Must try these cakes, they are fantastic, light and airy. I am not sure why I have piped bubbles in my buttercream, but it tastes good even if they don't look perfect.
Spend the extra time beating properly and you will be rewarded.
