Tastes amazing, but the texture was kind of strange. I recommend adding toasted coconut to the frosting to make it taste one level up. YUM!

A bit sweet for me, I will use less powdered sugar next time and reduce milk accordingly. I love lemon and this hit the spot.

Love this recipe but for me it was too much frosting. I am doing 2 pound cakes.
