Finished The Southern Living Christmas Cake

This morning right before lunch. I used to do it every Christmas years go, and just quit because of work and laziness. It takes a lot of time and thought for me, but my wife helped me through it. It’s a lemon curd filling in between the cake with an amazing coconut cream cheese icing that we fought over the spatulas and leftovers this morning! I stink at piping decorations though…but it will taste awesome tonight-it has to taste good with all this butter, sugar and cream cheese I’ve mixed into this thing.

What time are you serving dessert? :grinning:

My grandmother Barnes used to make a Birthday cake for the baby Jesus every year. It had a lemon filling between the layers. It was always baked in an Angel food pan and she would put a Madonna figurine in the center. There were kneeling, praying cherub figurines around the outside.

It was tasty and beautiful.

Dang. That puts to shame my apple pancake crepes Christmas morning.

The cake was cut last night and was voted a major winner! It was RICH…I’m guessing 500 calories per slice. The lemon/coconut contrast was amazing. I’m a chocolate guy, but this cake was VERY good.


So when will the recipe be posted? That would be a good thread that would need to be pinned if everyone posted their favorite recipes.

Apple pancakes were a hit. I ran out of batter and had to make a second batch.
