TWD- Perfect Party Cake

This week’s recipe was chosen by mix, mix…stir, stir for Perfect Party Cake- a four layer lemon flavored cake filled with raspberry jam and lemon swiss meringue buttercream, topped with coconut. I changed mine up a little, omitting the lemon extract because I’m not a fan of strong lemon flavored desserts, skipping the raspberry jam and using fresh blueberries and raspberries, and skipping the coconut.This cake is really wonderful. The amount of lemon was just right for my tastes, and my husband proclaimed this to be his new favorite. Several people in the P&Q didn’t have enough frosting, but mine turned out to be just right. The buttercream is one of the best I’ve had- so light and creamy. Even this girl couldn’t get enough.
