Art(?): The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Lemon Brick Cake

Hello all! This here be my first post!

I recently posted a culinary creation on my blog inspired by The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and I set out to look for people who might appreciate it. I wasn't sure what to title this, and "Art" is the closest thing I could find. On my blog, I'm starting a feature of culinary creations inspired by my favorite books, and the first one is The Wonderful Wizard of Oz! Here's a peek:

Here we have brick-layered lemon yellow cake with lemon frosting “mortar”, an outside layer of whipped lime icing, sprinkled poppy seeds along the sides, and shards of lime emerald hard candy pieces scattered on top.

When we began considering The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the most obvious impressions that came to mind were Emerald City, the yellow brick road, and themes of childhood adventure and magic. A fluffy, fruity cake seemed most appropriate for representing the glorious imagination of childhood, so we went with lemon and lime flavors...

The rest is under a fake lj-cut to the original post:

(The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Lemon Brick Cake-- and recipe!)

Hope you at least found this interesting (and even try the recipe for yourself =D)
