This is the first cake I've tried out of the new Christina Tosi cookbook All About Cake. I needed to make a cake for a birthday in the office and this seemed to be the best fit in terms of flavors.
This cake was vanilla cake layers soaked in fresh squeezed lemon juice filled with pickled strawberry jam, milk crumbs, lemon curd cheesecake and topped with pickled strawberry frosting and more milk crumbs.
The finished cake was really good, if a bit hard to slice. One person at work even said it was their favorite cake they'd ever had! I can't wait to try the next cake from that book :)
This blog will follow my adventures with cake, pastry and all things sweet!
