i think the name of this cake comes about from using the best and most luxuriuous lemon ingredients. for ROSE’S heavenly CAKES: Woody’s Lemon Luxury Layer Cake (page 409). my take on luxury is as follow:
1- lemon curd from TipTree. omg, it is delicious. not a hint too sweet, profusely lemon, descent color, and all natural. it is imported from England! this would be one of the world finds worth bringing. really, i think there isn’t any other store-bought lemon curd that equals the freshness of home made lemon curd. you must try this one, i am telling you the flavor is amazing. it has a lemon flavor depth that i’ve never encounter before (maybe the lemons are organic! lol):
2- and, boyajian lemon oil. i substituted the lemon zest called on the cake batter, with lemon oil. now, read the label carefully, it is so lemony and concentrated that i can stain your plastic measuring spoons. what to do? dunk the used measuring spoon on a glass of iced water and you have instant lemonade. now, THAT is hector’s TAKE!
