Another ray....

Thank you for your super-positive reaction to my last post about lemon curd. It seems that plenty of us were ready for a bit of colour and sunshine. As it struck a chord, I thought I'd show you the cake that I made with the lemon curd this morning, for no good reason other than to inject a little more brightness into another grey day.
A Victoria sponge, flavoured with lemon zest and sandwiched together with a very thick layer of yellow goodness.

Posing here on one of my favourite linen tablecloths, the blue of a summer sky with beautifully embroidered primroses, daffodils and other spring flowers.


  1. Dear Streetcomber
    What a lovely sunshiney image - perfect for brightening a dull and snowy day. I need to bake a lemon curd cake! Your tablecloth is stunningly beautiful too.

  2. Your cake looks wonderful. I've just stopped for lunch and wish I could sample a slice! M x

    1. I wish I could give you a slice too!

  3. I should make this for my Mum-n-Law. She loves lemon! Yellow and blue are a winning colour combination. If they don't cheer you up, nothing will!

  4. Your cake looks delicious... the table cloth is gorgeous too :)

  5. Your cake looks divine and the table cloth is darling!
