FUN. Yes, the cake is a lot of work, but it's so special. I've never seen anything like this anywhere else... neither as the eater or the chef. And what a fascinating combination of flavors and colors. // I was, honestly, grossed out by using shortening, but the end product is tasty. And by the time you're eating it, you've already forgotten what went into it. // I separated the layers with store-bought lemon curd (get the runnier kind, versus the thick gel), and then made the "Golden Orange Frosting" from this site. I love them both with this cake. // This was my first time making the cake, and from preheating to the last washed dish, this took me 3 hours on the dot. // I would absolutely make this again.
