I’d like to think a glaze is icing without all the guilt, wouldn’t you agree? Just a little touch of lemon glaze to quench your summer sweet tooth without all the calories of a pile of icing. 

If that’s not enough, lemon glaze creates the prettiest drizzle that enhances any basic dessert, making it feel more like a centerpiece. No cake decorating skills required, which is an added bonus for me! I still long to take cake decorating classes, but until I find the time, this glaze will do just fine!
