Chef's tips:

  • You can freeze the loaf cake before you ice it then ice it after the cake has defrosted.
  • You can always use orange, grapefruit, lime, clementine, or a mix of any citrus fruit.
  • When making the icing, add small amounts of lemon juice at a time so you get a thick consistency.
