  4. This is gorgeous! I've just come from the Linky Party to have a look at the cake... I do love a good cake recipe. I never seem to make as many cakes as I'd like! If you absolutely HAD to add icing (say, the kids wouldn't eat it without an icing layer) would you do just a thin glaze icing with lemon or orange juice? Or a cream cheese one, or something totally different? I don't know how this would go in a lunchbox without a little icing... I have a picky one!

    1. A thin orange juice glaze icing would be great. Cream cheese might work, I will have to try that one. If you try it please let me know how you go :)
