This fucking cake.
Actually, attempt number...3...4? I've lost track....came out correctly. Fraisier cake is still a fiddly fucking cake, and I'm not sure that I was impressed enough with the final result to want to fuck with it in the future.
But it DID give me some useful skills for tackling future GBBO bakes.
As you may well remember, my first real "fail blog post" was about this cake. And I still stand by that post. Fuck this cake.
But maybe it's not as bad as I originally thought it was.
This is the post some of you have probably been waiting for - the post where I swear. A lot.
Fraisier Cake can go fuck itself.
The lemon tart. One of my favorite desserts.
Really, I love a lot of lemon desserts. Lemon tarts. Lemon bars. Lemon cake. Give me something lemon-y and sweet and I'm probably going to love it.
The lemon tart, frequently referred to as a tarte au citron on GBBO, is really not a very difficult dessert in my opinion. This isn't the first time I've made a lemon tart - this is just the first time I've made this particular crust with this particular variant on the filling.
Lemon tarts are technically a custard tart, so this particular bake fits in a lot of different challenges over the seasons.
