Day 44


Today I started out by making Lemon Curd which, I realize, sounds real appetizing.  It is surprisingly tasty.  Very tart and smooth.  It's kind of like a lemon pudding...but better.

It starts out looking like melted butter in a pan and gets stirred until it's thick...but wait!  There's more!

THEN it gets poured through a chinois (shin-wah) over the butter

While that was chilling, I made a thin cake and sprinkled powdered sugar on it

Then I spread the lemon curd onto the cake

And rolled it up (the stuff on top is buttercream, I'll get to that next)

After the buttercream gets spread over the rolled-up cake, it gets cut into three pieces and made into....

(seriously, it's supposed to be a Bucche de Noel, a yule log cake.  It's usually brown and has meringue mushrooms)

This is the beginning of a Pineapple Upside-Down Cake...mmmm.

And when it's done, it looks even tastier.  It was SOOO good.

  1. For future of *NOM*, maybe you can come up with a pineapple upside down cake with "real" cherries instead of maraschino. The maraschino ones look nice but they are just disgusting.
