Lemon Raspberry Layer Cake Assembly and Decoration

Not really a recipe, this time! We did a video on how we assembled the layer cake (that was my birthday cake) that we have been building up to. Certainly, this is not as fancy as Claire Saffitz's baking academy on the Bon Appetit channel, but hopefully it makes things a little accessible to people. Hubby is a trained chef, but he's not a pastry chef, and we rarely do much baking because he tries to avoid carbs as much as possible, so we don't have a lot of the equipment, like a cake stand, or even an off-set spatula. You can get past all of that with stuff you probably have in your home! Also, just because it's not fancy-store-high-end-bakery-perfect-looking doesn't mean it's not delicious, which is the far more important part of baking, and trust me, this was delicious.

This flavour combination was aimed directly at me, but you can do all sorts of different flavours for both the cake and the fillings. If you don't drink, or don't like booze, you can use lots of other things as a soak. There are so many possibilities with cake, and we hope you'll try some fun things!

1. There are ways to make

Lower carb baked stuff.

I try to modify recipes to reduce the carbs and preserve the deliciousness.

I have made a raspberry lemon cheesecake with a nut crust that knocked my socks off. I focused on extracts,used very little fruit. Did use lemon zest ,and a few raspberries crushed into the batter . To sweeten I used stevia,combined with alcohol sugars.

Just Google what you want to bake and add the word keto.

2. Oh, for sure!

And we definitely do SOME baking, but not usually the fancy stuff that requires things like a cake stand. He has a couple of items from his time at cooking school in his tool box, like a real professional piping bag with a variety of metal star tips, etc... but we just don't have the space for a lot of baking equipment when we do it so infrequently
