HI! Beautiful Cake!!! I was very inspired and am trying to make it right now! Could you tell me how you made your icing? Mine just looks clear and when i add powdered sugar it just ends up tasting like powdered sugar!

thanks,

-Ali

paula said...

thank you all so much for your wonderful birthday wishes :)

Ali . I simply added lemon juice (strained) to icing sugar until it was the right consistency :)

Olá Paula! Vi a tua sugestão para decorar o bolo de aniversário de limão e não resisti: coloquei em meu blog (http://turtlethings.blogspot.com/2011/01/bolo-de-limao-com-folhas-de-chocolate.html) Eu já havia visto teu delicado trabalho no blog Bloesen, mas fiquei surpresa com as folhas. Somente uma ceramista que admira anatureza é capaz de oferecer essa idéia. Muito obrigada,
