Triple-layer Lemon Cake, Pink Lemonade Filling with Tinted Lemon Buttercream Starbursts

The sunshine of lemon in the dark days of winter can be a terrific shot in the arm – I know it is for me, anyway!  This Lemon Cake has a wonderful texture and a luscious lemony flavor.

I tinted the Lemon Buttercream with pink gel and added just a tiny drop or two of Strawberry extract, which gives it a super pink lemonade flavor.

I really love this starburst design.  When using this technique earlier on this cake, I worked with four colors, but I think it works wonderfully here with three colors and surely five colors wouldn’t be too many.

This was a fun cake to share with my people.  And my partner.
