Perfect Party Cake

Another fabulous cake, and yes, another recipe from "Baking: From My Home to Your's." This has definately been my baking cookbook of choice for the month. The Perfect Party Cake is a tender, white, lemon cake with lemon buttercream and raspberry filling, finished with coconut flakes. The cake is really good. It has a perfect, soft texture. I absolutely love it! I am not that fond of raspberry though, and next time will fill with strawberry or blueberry jam. HEB carries a blueberry-cherry More Fruit preserves that would be wonderful. In her "playing around" comments, Greenspan suggests using fresh fruit along with the buttercream and preserves between the layers and adding berries on top. Yum! I LOVE IT!! The yellow roses were made with stiff consistency buttercream.

I'm making this cake for my grandmother's birthday tomorrow. I'm going to top it with fresh flowers (daisies). I can't wait to see the look on her face! :-)
