I knew exactly who I was going to make this recipe for the minute I saw it! The cake layers are a lemon ginger cake. There is powdered ginger, grated fresh ginger and diced candied ginger in the cake along with fresh lemon juice and lemon zest. The cake is paired with a white chocolate Italian meringue buttercream. This is the fourth recipe I've tried from the Layered cookbook and I must say I think this is my favourite book ever! I don't even like ginger and I still found this delicious!
i topped the cake with candied lemon slices and a few chunks of candied ginger. I'm not sure which recipe I'll try next from this book but I can honestly say I'm excited for it, whichever recipe I pick!
This blog will follow my adventures with cake, pastry and all things sweet!
