April was birthday month at our house. 2 out of 3 boys will be celebrated for turning a year older. Birthdays at our house have turned into an all out food fest as they have gotten older. Homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast, a favorite meal at supper and a special dessert.
For dessert this year, the birthday boy requested a 3 layer cake with lemon curd and whipped cream frosting AND he wanted to make it himself; I never realized how much one can concentrate on cracking eggs, how far flour truly can fly and that if making a layer cake was always this fun, I would make them every week.
For Filling: I'll be honest, I cheated and purchased the lemon curd (Trader Joe's). Very delicious.
To make frosting:
Cake recipe adapted from Food Network, frosting recipe my own.
