English 02 Gingerbread Cake (page 75) – ginger and lemon

ROSE’S heavenly CAKES: English Gingerbread Cake (page 75) uses freshly grated ginger and a delicate lemon buttery syrup.

my take is elevated with a drape of lemon fondant: knead albert uster massa fondant with LOTS of lemon zest (wash the lemons with dish soap and warm water first) and a hint of lemon oil.

who can resist a white sugary dough exploding like a lemon drop candy on ones tastebuds? this is the first i’ve seen people loving fondant instead of scraping it out and leaving it on the plate!

    Lovely! How does this fondant taste (before adding the zest)? I think the zest is very pretty–adds an interesting texture like wrapping paper.
