A birthday cake for Michelle!
Michelle’s artwork was just featured on NPR. She says this is her lucky year, and it’s looking pretty good already.
For Easter, I decided I wanted to make these awesome cakes baked in egg shells.
I find them pretty magical, and fairly easy to make, if a little tedious. Then again, we did make a lot of them.
I tweaked the recipe a bit because I couldn’t find any egg nog, and I also wanted lemon cakes. The differences between my cakes and the cakes in the recipe are as follows:
-Doubled the recipe.
-Added low-fat buttermilk instead of egg nog. (Whole fat would have worked better, but the store didn’t have it.)
-Added juice of one Meyer Lemon.
-Added lemon zest of two Meyer Lemons for flavor.
-Forgot to oil the insides of the shells.
If you don’t feel like making cake from scratch, a cake mix would probably work just fine. In conclusion, cake in egg shells kicks ass. Happy Easter!
