It's thyme to party. Whether you're hosting an intimate birthday celebration or a ladies' luncheon, this Lemon Cake with Lemon-Thyme Frosting will be receiving a VIP invitation.
This lemon cake will be a ray of sunshine at your next gathering. Starting with a base of lemon cake mix, this layer cake gets dressed up with a homemade lemon buttercream frosting. Since you're saving so much time by using boxed cake mix (get our tips on how to jazz it up here), you can really dedicate your time to the best part—constructing and decorating your layer cake. We dye this lemon cake frosting three shades of yellow and use a bench scraper to create an ombré effect up the sides of the cake.
For a touch of brightness, we love to infuse fresh herbs, such as thyme, into our frosting. A frosting that's infused with fresh herbs sounds fancy, but it's just as easy as making a cup of tea. Heat up the heavy cream, and then let the thyme sprigs steep. Fresh rosemary would also pair nicely with this lemony cake.
