Is there a better way to welcome someone to the neighborhood than with a thoughtful baked treat? I don’t think so. But then again I love baked treats. And honestly, if your new neighbor hates cakes, don’t you want to know it from the beginning? Because really you should consider moving to a more cake friendly environment.
This cake is a combination of a couple different techniques. I went with a bright gold to ivory ombre because it compliments the lemon cake and lemon curd filling inside. Instead of the ruffle technique, I went with the water color frosting with a more subtle change of shades. The whole thing topped off with some sprinkles and sugar pearls.
This cake embodies the newest saying “good cake makes great neighbors.”
