Good Lemon Cake Recipe 2016

INGREDIENTS
1 box lemon cake

eggs

water

oil

Seedless Strawberry Jam

Lemon Head candy, chop 1/2 the pack and save the other 1/2 for decoration

1 qt container of Rich’s Buttercream Frosting, or 2 cans vanilla frosting, or

Homemade Lemon Cream Cheese frosting

1 stick butter softened

8 ounce package cream cheese

2 tsp vanilla extract

2-3 cups powdered sugar

2 tbsp lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350°F. In 2 8-inch pans, prepare, bake & cool cake according to package directions. I find it much easier to work with frozen cakes so I place my cake in the freezer for a few hours to overnight.Using a hand mixer beat the Rich’s Buttercream Frosting according to directions on carton. Mix the chopped Lemon Head Candy and lemon extract into 3 cups of the prepared frosting. (If you’re using the canned vanilla frosting stir the Lemon Head candy into one can and save the other can for decoration.)

Assembly
Place one layer of cake on a cake plate. I like to keep large round thick plates on hand for making layer cakes, but you can also get Styrofoam cake rounds from a cake supply store, or use a dinner plate from your kitchen.

Use a spatula to spread some Strawberry Jam on the top of the first layer, but not on the sides.

Place second layer on top of first. Put cake in freezer to set for about 10-15 minutes.

Frosting
I find it best to apply frosting in two layers. First spread a thin layer over entire cake using a spatula. Place cake back in freezer for about 5 minutes for the first layer to set. You can place your cake on a Lazy Susan if you have one, as this will make maneuvering your cake easier during the frosting process.

After first layer of frosting has set, continue by spreading frosting on the cake sides. Next, pile frosting onto center of the cake and spread frosting out toward the edges of the cake and down the sides.

Decoration
Using a decorator/pastry bag and a star tip make “stars” around the outside edge of your Lemon Cake, and one in the center. Place a Lemon Head candy on each “star”. Finish by putting a trim around the bottom of the cake.

This lemon cake can easily be made a birthday cake by simply adding the writing if you are able(or add a birthday pic from the cake store).
