Lemon Strawberry Cake

I made this cake for me, so there really is no “wow” factor. No fancy decorations or picture set up. This is me, in cake form. A relatively pretty package with no fuss.

With everyone else posting yummy, lemony treats, I really wanted lemon. I don’t usually make anything with lemon because the Husband doesn’t like lemon (I know, right!?).

Lemon cake with lemon buttercream. For filling, I used strawberry preserve and buttercream for the top and bottom layers. For the middle layer I used a lemon custard (okay, it was lemon pudding) and more strawberry preserve.

You know I liked the cake. The important question is: what did Husband think?

“You really have to love lemon to like this cake.”

He still ate his whole piece, so I don’t know what he was bitching about.

Husband did want to know why I didn’t tell him I wanted a lemon cake so he could make me one. He even mentioned taking a picture of said cake to put on my blog…

Maybe one day, if you’re good, I’ll share with you the cakes he makes me for my birthdays.

It’ll be worth the wait. Trust.
