Lemon Love Cake

My middle son turned three this weekend, and here is the cake I made:

It was not without blood, sweat, and a whole lot of tears! Basically, it is a lemon pound cake that has been hollowed out on the inside & filled with cream, then glazed and decorated with homemade white chocolate polka dots (colored blue) and yellow skittles. The tears came after I finished it and tried to move it-- the whole thing fell apart! It was a complete train wreck, in at least four different pieces, not to mention the top had completely fallen off. I somehow managed to squish it all back together and cover up the rest of the carnage with candy lemon slices. No one was the wiser, and it tasted pretty good, too!


  1. looks so delicious! i love the colors.

  2. It looks so pretty! You'd never know there was a train wreck under there!

  3. What a great story--be sure and tell your son this tale when he's old enough to appreciate it.
