Citrus-Flavored Personalized Cake by theresahelmer Citrus-Flavored Personalized Cake by theresahelmer
Citrus-Flavored Personalized Cake -

:bulletblue: How to make this

~ A box of white cake mix (or you can make from scratch as i did here).
~ Divide your batter into two even portions. Add your favorite food colorings. I used Wilton Gel Food colorings in green and blue.
~ It depends on the size of the lemons, you will need 1 tablespoon finely grate lemon peel for each color. Here is a answers.yahoo.com/question/ind… if you are not familiar with this step. I also added 1/2 teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice to each color, to further enhance the favor. You may omit this step for your personal taste preference.
~ Add grated lemon peel to cake batter then mix well. Bake cake according to your box instruction or bake cake according to your own recipe. For this cake, i baked it at 350 for 20 minutes.
~ Once the cake is cooled down enough. Use a cookie cutter (you can use any shape(s)).
~ A super fun and very inexpensive way to make a big impact. This cake took no more than 45 minutes from preparation to eating!

I served this as a personalized cake for my afternoon tea with friends.

Looks delicious! I wonder, though, could you use orange zest and juice instead of or along with the lemon?
