Then, Let them Eat Cake!

I like cake, yes the band...but especially the food. I mean, put it in a bowl with some ice cream and I am darn near heaven.

Ready to drool?
This cake is a three layer sour cream cake, filled with homemade lemon curd and iced with a lemon mascarpone frosting.

This cake got its start about a year ago when I planned and catered my grandmother's 90th birthday party. I was cake testing to figure out what sort of flavor combination/s I wanted to do and I stumbled upon this. I knew it was the perfect trifecta when, sitting at my dining table, fork in hand, I couldn't stop eating it. It took my mother (who was visiting me at the time/taste testing) prying the fork out of my hand and promising me that it would still be there tomorrow. It was a sheet cake meant to serve 75 people and I devoured about a fourth of it (no joke).
Here is a photo of the original test cake.

After this experience and the sugar coma that ensued, for me, recipe testing, especially baked goods is a mighty dangerous thing.
