This is my tried and true Lemon and Buttermilk Cake which I have made countless times. I made this cake, (you can see it is sitting on a rather unattractive dish but this is my cake container base), for Harry's ballet teacher and her partner after a particularly harrowing week. I figure there's nothing like a bit of cake love when you have had a hard week. I quickly piped the buttercream into rosettes which, while a little rough, still looks rather pretty. Add to that a bit of yellow edible glitter and I think it looked ok.
