Happy Birthday....D'Artagnan??

Last week I wanted to make a cake just for us to eat. I was aiming for something sweet and tangy - going along with our beautiful weather we had had all week (up until Thursday morning). I went for a lemon flavoured cake with homemade lemon filling. My buttercream icing recipe makes enough to ice and decorate, and instead of shelving the leftovers I added some rosettes on the top with shell borders. I also had some leftover thin icing for lettering and just to appease my son I wrote Happy Birthday on it and added candles as he was turning 11 on Thursday.
