When my Mom goes out of town, I become the happy recipient of whatever perishables are still in her refrigerator. This time I was the recipient of a whole bag of Meyer lemons. I wanted to make something delicious with them, so first I made lemon curd and then I decided to make lemon cake. I was very pleased with the results and rather enjoyed the lemon-blueberry flavor combination. Something about the layered cake was feeling festive, so then I decided to make little flags.
While in San Francisco, I came across these Weck jars. They are my favorite thing for giving lemon curd in.
I wanted the cake to feel rustic, so instead of finishing the cake clean side up, I decided to expose the cut side.
