Deezert is one! My First Blogoversary: Celebrating with Lemon Cake

I can't believe it's already been a year since I started blogging. I remembered how reluctant I was at hard it all looked! All that code and what not..

But soon enough, I got the hang of it and I fell in love with blogging and regretted that I haven't started one long before.

It's really amazing if you think about, I've been my stats for a while now and I have people from all around the world that read this blog: Germany, UK, India, Canada, Australia, Jordan, Algeria...really all over the place...
This just baffles me!!

And don't worry, there will be cake in this post. Did you really think Deezert's birthday will pass without any cake?!!!!!!

I opted for simple (yet not so simple to make) lemon cake.

The vanilla cake was 4 layers of angel food cake, so all egg whites and no yolks!

YUM, white vanilla fluffy cake.

I could eat this cake all by itself but the lemons looked so beautiful I had to use them in some way.

I made a delicious thick lemon curd using sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest and a whole bunch of eggs.

 I stacked the cake and the lemon curd and covered the whole thing with sweet white marshmallow fondant (again, Deezert's birthday has to have marshmallow fondant somewhere in it!).

Me, making the flower =)

I ruffled long strips of fondant and layered them on top of the cake and added a 5 petal flower on top.

Isn't this a refreshing way to start another year of full Deezerts??

Happy First Birthday Deezert

Pin It now!


  1. Happy Birthday, el 3omur killo :)

  2. I cannot beleive that all this started a year ago. What i am sure of is that this wouldn't have succeeded without the loving heart you have, your passion and your will. I will always be there for you.

    1. This wouldn't have succeeded without you mom! you've always supported me (in and out of the kitchen :P) and without you i couldn't have done it1!! Thanks for everything.
      I love you!!!!!!


Thank you for leaving a comment!!! It's what gets me excited to go into the kitchen and bake again! =D
