So, I apparently missed the contest by a couple months but I'm thinking about doing my first instructable as my favorite Lemon Pound Cake. Didn't see any other instructables on pound cakes so I thought it'd be a good idea. Thought I'd see what others thought.

I can't believe how awesome those cakes are. I haven't seen them all, but I like the ones above and the dynamite cake.

Mine was a rushed job so it is neither pretty nor different, except that I have finally gotten to taste a piece and despite it being "ug-i-ly", it is really wonderfully chocolaty (and if you like raspberries, this is glazed with them too. :-)

IF you want to see it, it is here: no tricks, nor diversions. This IS the Link.

Oh well, I thought it was extra ugly myself. But it did turn out better tasting than I thought it would :-)

The first time I ever made it, I took special care with the cake; spreading it out fairly thin on a large rectangular pan, then cut the resulting thin cake into 7 pieces, put the glaze in between as well as on top. Then the ganauche. But even though I had made a rather large looking cake, once cut up and put back together in a stack, it was barely 5" x 6" . It WAS really good, but so much work for a rather large single piece of cake *sigh*

Yeah, I hate it when you are doing a really long project and you get such a small result.


is it just me or does the robot on the side (robogames) look sinister?

Hmm, either sinister or he is really "into" his toy LOL I have seen that look on the face of a lot of gamers at the arcades :-)

Yeah, once it is towards the evening, like now, I am at work, and they don't mind me in and posting now and then, but if I had the chat room up, the firewall would end up with a LOT of entries on it.....and they would wander how I got my work done :-)

Points off for the Rubik's Cake, for using someone else's pictures though, in my opinion...

Not that it's a bad instructable, mind you. The instructions are well done, and they got permission to use the photographs.

I just would have been happier if they had acknowledged up front that they we using someone else's pictures, and I wouldn't want to see them judged in the same league as someone who has great instructions and original photographs...
