Ombre Sunshine Cake

This cake is full of love, sunshine and fresh lemon zest! Just what a girl needs on a rainy day. Or at a garden party. Or beaming from her fabulous wedding dessert table. For breakfast, lunch and after supper. To share with her best friend, mom, and best man. It's just that kind of lovely.

Shades of lemon-hued vanilla bean buttercream work their way up the sides in charming ombre fashion. Inside is loaded with four layers of lemon poppyseed cake, house lemon curd, and vanilla bean buttercream, making this one beautiful and tasty inside and out.

Texture shot! The little black flecks of Tahitian vanilla bean add even more richness to the ruffle.
