Cake idea came from here
Cake recipe came from here
Icing recipe came from here

* one recipe makes enough for two 8 in. round pans... it measures a total of 6 C. *
* I added fresh lemon zest to the icing and about 1/3 c of heavy whipping cream *
* I also took out 3 tsp. of vanilla... I didn't like how brown it made the icing *
