Tried and Tasted: Sansa Stark’s lemon cakes from A Song of Ice and Fire

When it comes to baking and making sweet things, I’m often terrified – I never really took time out to learn how to bake properly so I nearly always fascinated at what people create.

I’m a massive fan of A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones and when I read the description of Sansa Stark’s favourite treat, lemon cakes, I knew I had to give them a go (also my other half loves lemons so I thought, “why not?”)

Though there are loads of variations on the recipe, I decided to go for the one from the Geeky Chef  because the overall look was incredibly pretty.

I’m very happy with how they turned out in the end, but I think I’d definitely recommend keeping them in the oven for maybe a bit longer because the first batch were a bit soggy. I left them in from 10 minutes extra and they firmed up – but keep an eye on them.
