Cream Cheese Butter Cake with Light Lemon Curd Buttercream

Bright, blooming flowers are magnets to bees.  Just like how this vibrant yellow cake captivated my daughter's attention.  She was hoping her mischievous snowman ("Snowgies" or "Snow Babies") could sneak away the entire Cream Cheese Butter Cake.  Fortunately, I was quick enough to slice them into ninth.

We both started having one ninth of the cake at the same time, but I stopped half way to get a good shot of the cake.  By then, she had finished her portion and jumped over to photobomb me with her thumbs up, "It's divine, Mum.  The lemon curd is so delicious!!"

Golden Swan Puffs (Perfect Savoury Cream Puffs)

After reading Rose's recipe, my daughter decided for me to go with the extra light and airy puff (Deluxe Puff variation), lightly sweetened whipped cream filling and swan shaped puffs.  When I asked if she would give the chicken liver filling a try, she exclaimed, "You've gotta be kidding me!".  Being a nice mum, I fulfilled her desired swan puffs.
