today i made this purple lemon cake for some good friends who just moved back to San Diego. i meant to make it blue (like the sky and add white "clouds"), but when i put the food coloring in, it wasn't the light blue i was hoping for, so i added red to make it purple instead. i'll have to try experimenting with food coloring also. so far, i've only used the liquid food coloring from the grocery store.
after i made the top border, it started to droop! it was really hot and humid today, plus i made the border too close to the edge, i guess, and the border fell in a couple places. i've been able to make a smoother cakes, but after i had to clean this up, this cake was kind of a mess.
