Lemon Cake with Gin-Sour Icing

Since we have a crazy lemon tree outside that produces way too many lemons to keep up with, I decided to make a boozy lemon and gin icing that goes perfectly with this cake.


The gin and lemon pair quite well together, reminding you of a Gin Sour cocktail, adding a refreshingly sophisticated top to your moist lemon cake.
