I want to make a lemon cake with a lemon pudding in the middle, but I am not sure what type of icing to use. I don't want the flavor of the cake and pudding to fight with the icing. Please help!
I just LOVE cream cheese icing with lemon
Cream cheese is really good my personal fav. is raspberry buttercream made with fresh raspberries yum! It has become my signature cake with my clients.
I made a lemon cake with raspberry cream chease bc. It was really good and everyone loved it.
Okay great! Does anyone have a really great raspberry butter cream recipe?
I use the Cake Boss BC recipe which was posted in the Orlando Sentinel newspaper.
Instead of vanilla flavoring I used CK raspberry flavor. I always use more than it calls for. I like alot of flavor.
I am next going to try indydebi's bc recipe which is popular.
1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine softened
1 teaspoon clear vanilla extract I would adjust it to your taste.
4 cups sifted confectioners' sugar (approximately 1 lb.)
2 tablespoons milk
Makes: About 3 cups of icing at medium consistency)
1. In large bowl, cream shortening and butter with electric mixer. Add vanilla. Gradually add sugar, one cup at a time, beating well on medium speed. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl often.
2. When all sugar has been mixed in, icing will appear dry. Add milk and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy. Keep bowl covered with a damp cloth until ready to use.
Recipe note: For best results, keep icing bowl in refrigerator when not in use. Refrigerated in an airtight container, this icing can be stored 2 weeks. Rewhip before using.
Thanks ReneeFLL. I will try this recipe! Sounds yummy!
I like to use white chocolate buttercream or ganache with lemon. The smooth, almost vanilla taste of white chocolate is a nice balance to the sharp tang of any citrus. It's the reason people love orange creamsicles.
