Welcome Home

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.”
