I don't care for any frosting on birthday cakes, as I believe it was invented by dentists who needed extra cash.....

I love love love a really tart lemon sauce over either gingerbread or carrot cake. YUM!
I also like a good marzipan, rolled thin and then laid over a yellow cake that has a marmalade filling.

Oh!! Now I am so hungry!

Oh now you made me hungry for a cake that a bakery makes. It is a plain lemon cake, I think they pour lemon juice or lemon concentrate in the cake and then they drizzle a very tart lemon icing over it. Ummmmmm, the cake is the best one I have ever eaten and just a drizzle of icing. :)

That sounds so good, Icy!

Of course, now I'm rummaging through my cupboards wanting to make a lemony-something....... I also like pound cake with lemon sherbet and blueberries with warmed lemon sauce on top.

Okay, that's it....I'm cooking lemons this weekend.

Another good topping over a plain cake:

1 c. orange blossom honey
1/2 c. light cream
2 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp Grand Marnier

Combine all and cook over low heat for about 10 minutes or so.
Pour over pound cake and serve with a small dollop of whipped cream on top.

Do you have a nice neighbor with a lemon tree?

Mix some lemon juice with a bit of honey, warm it up and drizzle it over your cake in the trifle. Then add the rest of the stuff.

I get the best lemons from my parents. They have a tree that's grafted, so there's lemons, limes and lemon-limes. The last are my favorite. Also, their skin is thin and they are really juicy.

Now I want a lemon tree.

Maybe I'll go make a lemon meringue pie.
