Italian Lemon Cake

This Italian lemon pound cake is a recipe that I'd had my eye on for a long time. I finally made it back in April! I skipped adding frosting but if you visit the original recipe it'll tell you how to make it. The glaze needed a lot more lemon juice than the recipe called for. I used 5 tablespoons of lemon juice and it was still very thick. The cake itself isn’t very lemony so you really do need either the glaze or the frosting to bring the lemon flavour to this recipe. I'm not complaining though, it was still really delicious!

Pink Hot Chocolate

This was tasty and very pretty! I didn't have any big marshmallows to cut hearts out of, but I did have a box of Lucky Charms! I picked out the hearts. I also came across some recipes online that called for maraschino cherry juice which is very clever! I didn't have any but next time I would rather use that than food colouring. It would also add a nice cherry flavour to your drink.

I was pretty sure I pinned the recipe for this but now I can't find it so I can't link back to where I found it. If you know who wrote it, please let me know.
