Triple Layer Lemon Meringue Cake

Lemon Meringue Cake

Oh, where do I even begin!?  First of all, Happy Easter friends!

I’ve so missed connecting with you every day and sharing the insanity that is my life.  Still counting my blessings, especially on this sacred holiday.  We are fully moved into my in laws basement with the help of amazing neighbors, both from our neighborhood and theirs.  It has made the move that much easier to know that we are leaving a group of great friends only to make new ones.

I had the opportunity to make this Lemon Meringue Cake before we moved, in fact, I photographed it the day of the big move.  All I can say is I had a rare {maybe not so rare} case of cake tunnel vision.  It’s like a tractor beam…sucks me right in.

It was a welcomed break from the packing and organizing and lovingly wrapping our knick knacks in bubble paper.  It also served as a wonderful bribe {not that we needed one} to anyone who came to help.  “Move that piano boys…then you can have cake.”

Thanks goodness we didn’t have to move the piano to my in laws or I would have had to make a couple more cakes.  Only about half of our things actually came with us as we search for a more permanent address.  The search starts Monday and while I’m excited to find THE home the thought of moving all this stuff again makes me want to dry heave.  Then perhaps bake this cake again as a distraction.
