Well the cake is waiting to be eaten. Was super simple to make, however I think my icing was a little thin as it ran off the sides rather than sit on top. Still looks good. Taste test soon (we all licked the bowl - wow!)

Haste makes waste...

Well, I followed the instructions and made this beautiful looking, wonderful smelling cake and then I killed it...

I made two mistakes in my haste:
1) I put way too much lemon juice into the icing sugar initially. This caused the icing to be very loose and clear. I added more sugar to thicken it up, but I don't think I did enough as it was still a little loose. It did turn opaque though.

2) cake was too warm to spread icing. So my already loose icing melted on contact and ran off the sides and soaked into my cake. This completely changed the texture to more of a pudding type of thing.

It was still tasty if not exactly like the picture. But I know what NOT to do next time....
Thanks again for the recipe !!

Yes it is good, even with my mistake. I think next time I might double the recipe and make two 9"rounds and stack 'em.
