I did end up baking this cake (again) for my friend's 20th birthday. I did not have any time to research and look up good cake recipes, so I just went ahead and went with what everyone told me about it. The people loved it, so I guess it was it.
I'm really lucky enough to have a lemon tree next door. I'm even luckier to have my grandparent's living next door. When I go to their house, my usual greeting would be something in the lines of, "Going to the back for some lemons. Ooooo, cookies! Hi grandma!". Don't you just love your grandparents? I seriously don't know what I would do with out them.
So the cake was faster process coming in the second time. Mostly due to the fact that I had all the ingredients ready from my previous try. I still ended up baking it a day before (Friday), which was just me trying to be cautious. On Saturday, right after work, I went straight to the fridge to see if my cake was still there. I had gotten a note card and written in with big red letters, "DO NOT EAT", and tapped it on the container. You never know with my brothers around the kitchen. They don't care who's it is, or what it is. If they're hungry, they'll eat it. Fortunately, my cake was still in the spot where I had left it before. I took it out and sprinkled it with a little powdered sugar for a nice decoration.
I left to my friend's house a couple of minutes after. I couldn't stay long (had some visitors at my place), so I just had time to give her the cake, a hug, and a little chat. I haven't had the chance to ask her if she liked it or not. She better have though. The recipe is in the previous entry.
Going to the great Hometown Buffet with Eunice on Thursday. I can not wait!
