Need a great lemon cake.

Island Mar 9, 2011 10:29 AM

Need lemony goodness with some lemon curd filling. Azucar has a multi layer with that and lemon buttercream frosting, that sounds decadent, but haven't had it before. Has anyone tasted that or have another tried and true suggestion? No fondant please. Thanks.

    I haven't tried that specific cake at Azucar, but I have tried many of their other cakes and they've been successful.

    Costco generally has a pretty decent lemon bundt cake available, but it'll be a miss on the lemon curd filling.

    Call the Grove Bakery. They recently hired a new master baker who is reworking many of the recipes the new owners put in when they took over. If they don't have it, I'm pretty sure they can make it specially for you

      Thanks Dining Diva. Checked out the Grove Bakery website and they do a lemon cake that sounds like what I was looking for, but too far to pick up with my schedule this weekend. Next time. Got the one at Azucar and it was a hit, very lemony, but I didn't care for the decorating. Picked up a few of their individual treats too and the guava pastries were great. Addictive.

        This may be a bit late and it's not exactly a 'chowish' place, but The Cheesecake factory makes a lemon cake that is delisious - and yes, it's cake not cheesecake.

        2nd Costco, pretty good flavor and very moist.

        TWIGGS on Adams Avenue has a great Lemon Cake that is made to order. Dan the Baker, also makes a fantastic Lemon Tart.
