So I have really been neglecting this blog recently. I just haven’t been feeling like myself, I haven’t really wanted to do any baking or come on the internet much, which all-in-all makes me a pretty rubbish ‘blogger’.
Started myself off with a pretty easy and messily-iced lemon cake. I used a vanilla sponge mix and added the juice and zest of one lemon. Then I poured a drizzle over the cake just as it came out of the oven, using the juice of half a lemon and some icing sugar, which I mixed together and heated over a low heat. It’s best to do this while the cake is still warm. Iced quickly with some icing sugar and water mixed together in a very messy zig-zag fashion, it makes a pretty good cake for afternoon tea.
Please excuse the piece missing from the cake, my mother insisted it needed “testing”.
