Lemon Cake in the Dark

Decided to try my hand at both baking and food photography tonight.

The electricity went out at my house just as this cake was coming out of the oven. I melted the butter in the warm oven while zesting and juicing a lemon before mixing the whole thing with an unholy amount of powdered sugar by cell phone flashlight. The power came back in time to decorate, garnish, and take the photos.

It tastes as delicious as it appears.
