If you look closely, you can see that the edges browned slightly. I've read that this isn't supposed to happen, but I don't really mind it. It looked very pretty when it was decorated, BUT I discovered that you just can't rush a candied lemon slice. There's no doing it. It will bite back. So this was pretty, but not edible.
So this is what we ate, not my nasty bitter lemons. These rasberries were super fresh. Yum.
