daring bakers and the perfect party cake

today is daring baker's day! this months cake was a recipe by the wonderful dorie greenspan - so that was a promise and a guarantee at the same time. i dont need to say much, do i? - perfect cake. you will find the recipe (and a wonderful pic of the cake) on this months host marvens blog.

this cake is quite something to write home about. you can fill it with jam, fresh fruit, add vanilla instead of lemon (like in the original recipe - i had to do that since i used all my lemons for a guacamole that just wouldnt taste right so i turned it into a lemon-guacamole, if there is such a thing at all). it somehow remembers me to the Dean and Deluca all occasion cake, that i wish to have for my birthday one day in my life.
