finely ground zest of one lemon
enough powdered sugar to make about 1 cup + of icing
came out a wonderfully creamy and lemony icing...
We enjoyed it very much also our dinner guest!!
Thanks for the wonderful idea, it will be added to our regular repartoire, and next time I will try the original glaze, too!!
Urmaniac, I am very glad that the cake turned out wonderfully! It was indeed a great idea to experiment with the creamy topping, just like the one for carrot cake. So now you have two variations of the cake. Fantastic!! I will definitely try it the next time round. Of course, I will have to hide it from my DH to help him with his diet program!
