This is a special one, its more for the words on the top, when this publishes the person it’s for should have it on her Kitchen table, I am delivering it personally some 206miles one way :), I have known this young lady for 29 yrs and she is one of the most inspirational Mums I have ever met.
Recipe for 2 x 7″ deep sponges
2 finely grated rind of 2 unwaxed Lemons (squeeze them also)
6 fresh medium to large eggs
12 Ozs of self raising flour (I used mcdougalls premium sponge flour)
12ozs of caster suger
12ozs of butter (unsalted)
1 tsp of Vanilla extract, (I use Hansells Vanilla Paste)
250gms of unsalted Lurpak
500gms of icing suger
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
add small amount of milk for the texture you wish
I also added the juice of a lemon slowly and checking flavour constantly
Its a lemon sponge with bits of different decorations, an Owl, a bird lots of swirls and bunting, the words on the top are, Friends, Blessing and strength, I am slowly learning how to do different but I know I have so much to learn to get the details perfect.
