So I experimented with two fillings; a lemon curd and a raspberry filling. I used organic fruits for both, raw sugar, organic unsalted butter; I think you get the picture. The only thing I do not know if it was organic or pure was the cornstarch. Honestly...have NO idea what corn starch is! I will google later and see if I can find an alternative. Hopefully the organic alternative does not include taking organic corn, drying for days, crushing into powder and some other crazy process because I may just be using the plain ole store bought corn starch. Ha ha.
|White cake with buttercream icing and a lemon curd filling (this one turned out the best in my opinion)|
|I am horrible at cutting cake...always a mess!!|
|Swiss Chocolate Cake with a Raspberry topping and pink buttercream (the raspberries were tart and may have been better balanced as a filling in between a layer of cake and icing around the whole cake. Or I could have used more sugar. :)|
