Lemon Raspberry Cake

Lemon Raspberry Cake Last week was our 1 year anniversary (our wedding: look, details, moments). To celebrate our anniversary I wanted to recreate our wedding cake. The day of the wedding I only had a bite or tow and had a little left over the next day, but wasn’t able to fully enjoy and devour the cake. Jana’s Creative Cakes made 2 cakes for our wedding. One was chocolate cake filled with caramel Swiss meringue buttercream and sliced almonds and topped with white chocolate Swiss meringue buttercream. The cake that I recreated was a lemon cake filled with lemon curd and raspberry Swiss meringue buttercream and topped with white chocolate Swiss meringue buttercream. Both were equally decadent and delicious. My mom planned on ordering our wedding cake for our first anniversary, but sadly Jana’s is closed until 2015. We were all heartbroken, but I knew I’d have to attempt the cake for myself.

I followed this Lemon Cake recipe (but not the frosting recipe). I made this Swiss Meringue Buttercream recipe. I put a third into a bowl and added raspberry jam and fresh raspberries. After the cake cooled I sliced it in half and spread the insides of the cake with lemon curd. I spread the Raspberry Swiss Meringue Buttercream over the lemon curd in between the cake rounds. I sandwiched the cake together and spread the plain Swiss Meringue Buttercream over the top and all around the cake. Finally I topped the cake with a ring of raspberries.
