No, it's not an illusion. Instead of your regular horizontal layer cake, I've turned this cake upside-down to create this fun and playful vertical stripe cake! I paired together perfectly spring flavors to make this lemon jelly roll cake with luscious raspberry buttercream. Silky Swiss meringue buttercream with confetti sprinkles add the finishing touches to the party cake. Flipped on its side, the cake slices with vertical layers. Pretty cool, right?
"This Lemon-Raspberry cake gives a new, whimsical twist to the typical layer cake. Creating vertical layers in each cake slice, this cake is sure to wow and excite anyone lucky enough to share a slice. The lemon sponge cake and raspberry buttercream filling create vertical stripes when the cake is cut into. With just a simple buttercream frosting and festive sprinkles, this clever cake will leave you looking like a culinary mastermind once you get a peak at the party going on inside. But trust me, it is much more simple than you might think. I won't tell if you don't."
