Most difficult thing is planning enough time to get it all done. It looks great on a round cake too.

Made this as a lemon cake in a 10" square for an auction. And then again in a six inch square for a friend. Love the simplicity and elegant look. People were really impressed! The directions were clear and easy to follow. Thanks!
