Family reunion on Sunday. I offered to bring cake for about 30 people. I am already making a chocolate cake for 15 people, so I need another cake of a similar size that could resist a 1-hour journey on bumpy roads. I am quite good at baking so I would like to show off a little! grin

Hmm, lemon drizzle loaf, coffee cake, carrot cake are always popular?

Lemon sounds like a good idea. Is there a way to make it look less plain, IYSWIM?

Delias iced lemon curd layer cake make sure you use a proper zester for naice curls and transport in one of these beauties

Someone linked to this apple cake earlier today. I'm hoping to make it this weekend for my lovely MIL's visit.
