Iantha's 7-Up Cake
This cake is a common recipe, but she didn't dare show up at a church potluck without it. When SHE made it, it was something special!
It only needs a glaze, but in one of these photos, I added the Peeps Sunflower from another Just A Pinch recipe to make it pretty for Easter.
I added a few photos of Mom in the directions for those who wanted to see them. You'll see she never lost her sense of humor or her ability to have fun!

How to Make Iantha's 7-Up Cake
- GLAZE: Stir the powdered sugar into the lemon juice and spread on top of hot cake. If you want to be a bit fancy, add a little lemon zest to the glaze.
(Jan says: This isn't a "pretty" cake. If you want to make it fancier, you could certainly frost it with a vanilla or lemon frosting and sprinkle it with lemon zest or even yellow sprinkles. In the photo I just added on 4/7/12 I decorated it for Easter with a Peeps Sunflower that I borrowed from another JustAPinch Recipe.
But it's so good with just the glaze that frosting would be overkill, IMHO! :P)
