  1. Zsuzsa, it looks amazing! I rarely make any frosting because I'm so clumsy with it. Yours looks perfect! I also sometimes crave lemons so much I have to make a cake or a tart.
    It's funny but only this year I learnt so many people have the habit to observe lent! (I have never been a religious ;-) ) One learns so many things through food blogs. Not only recipes! (Luckily!)

  2. Thank you Sissi! About lent... I have bones to pick with my church, but trust me, you don't want to hear about that. I am a rebel and I think it over why I do or don't do certain things. It is better for me to keep eating sweets and treating others with kindness than to deprive myself and then treat them badly in my food-deprived irritability.

  3. I totally agree!
    (Sorry, I meant to put the above comment under your beautiful cake and have just seen I went further down to the lemon frosting post...). The cake looks delicious!

I began to post recipes for my family and it turned out to be a work in progress. "zsuzsa is in the kitchen" has over 900 recipes of Hungarian and international recipes. My recipes are organized into a cookbook format. On top of the page click on the cookbook to get access to all my recipes. If I ever figure out how to add a printer friendly gadget I will add it. In the meantime feel free to cut and paste. Happy cooking!
