Topic: Torted with Agbay, 8 layer 10 in. round Lemon cake, lemon, raspberry fillings

This is a follow-up on my Agbay and what it can do. I've been longing to make an 8 layer cake for 2 years, 7 months, and 23 days. (From the time I walked into my first Wilton Basic course.) Well I finally made it!

This was a gift of love for my dearest and best friend of 35 years who just retired. She had a big whiz-bang party at a wonderful BBQ place.

It is a lemon cake, torted into eight 1/2" layers, with lemon sleeve filling, raspberry sleeve filling, lemon mousse filling, and raspberry mousse filling. The Pastry Pride also had lots of grated lemon zest in the filling and final frosting. It tasted wonderful!

It wasn't too hard to assemble. One of my Agbay torted layers did go wonky as you can see in the Prep Photo. I will obviously have to practice a little more, but this isn't too shabby for my second Agbay cake! It would have been impossible without the Agbay.

My original intention was to have an Ombre look with yellow, but Pastry Pride isn't a good medium for strong colors (I knew that!) AND yellow isn't a good choice for ombre (I knew that too!). Ah well.... it still looked ok. I used my Gelatin Flowers for the topper and everyone was fascinated.

Here's a bunch of pics to show the prep and finished slices. It had 8 layers of cake and 6 layers of filling. YIPPEE!!!!

You did a beautiful job on this cake! I also like the humerous reporting of your process. "...2 years, 7 months, and 23 days..." Had to laugh!

Holy cow. Did you save a slice for me? My gosh, that looks gooood! Your gelatin flowers look fabulous too. I can't even see any wires in them. Or do you have a technique that doesn't require wires?

I just invested in a Agbay too, love the heck out of it and today I am getting the electric turntable. Just 2 things I think that will make life easier! Great cake and I can't wait for an occasion to torte a cake too.
