The lemon slices disinigrate because the are blanched twice to get the bitterness out then cooked in the syrup. The lemon slices are a beautiful feature arranged on the top of the cake. It would be if they could remain solid instead of just circles of lemon rind. The cake is delicious and I have made it 3 times.
