As much as I love elaborate cake designs, sometimes there’s no beating the simple ones! This cake is probably one of the easiest recipes I’ve ever posted both in baking process and design, but I still loved the design when it was done!
Lemon-raspberry cake layers frosted with cream cheese buttercream, topped with a candy melt drip, lemon slices, and a sprinkle of freeze-dried raspberries! Recipes below! First note – you have options here! You can sub in your favorite lemon cake recipe, you can use my Favorite Vanilla Cake (intensivecakeunit.com/favorite-vanilla-cake-recipe) and sub the vanilla extract out for lemon extract and add some lemon zest, OR – you can you can do what I did and ‘bakery-level-up’ a couple of boxed cake mixes. Options for whatever levels of time and energy you have for baking today, and a delicious cake either way! ;)
