Elisabeth Prueitt's Lemon Cake
Elisabeth Prueitt, James Beard Award–winning pastry chef and co-owner of Tartine Bakery in San Francisco, created a lemon cake filled with layers of caramel, lemon cream, and lemon-grapefruit curd, all topped off with a jumble of hand-spun-sugar flowers. "I spent many summers at the beach as a kid drinking lemonade, and those memories, so bright and warm, are evoked in this cake," says Prueitt.
