I have a question about step 3 on the recipe "Lemon Birthday Cake" from Eric Liftin. It says:
"Separate the eggs for the frosting. Dump 4 of the yolks in the main bowl; repurpose the rest as you like. Put aside the whites (in a stainless bowl). Whisk in the 8 eggs and beat until foamy. Whisk in the cream and rum. " The recipe only calls for 8 eggs. Not 4 yolks and 8 eggs. Was it just a mistake in the ingredient list?
