Lemon Glaze (recipe adapted from Technicolor Kitchen)
- 1 ½ cups of sifted confectioners’ sugar
- 1 ½ Tbsp. of fresh lemon juice
- 1 1/2 Tablespoons of cream or milk
Mix the confectioners' sugar and lime juice together until all the lumps are gone and you have a nice smooth glaze. For a tartier flavour, add more juice. If you don't want it as sour, add more cream/milk. Pour over the cool cake. Try not to fall when transporting.
