Lemon Lovers Bundt Cake

Glaze is very tart! To add more color to the glaze (or cake) add 2-3 drops of yellow food coloring. The last time I made this, I used half butter, half butter flavored shortening & only about 3 TBS of juice in the batter. It made the lemon flavor a touch more mild and the cake was much more dense.

If you want a thicker glaze without adding more powdered sugar, skip the fridge & let the glaze harden while the cake is on the counter. Every 10 minutes or so, use a spoon to drizzle the excess glaze back onto the cake until you're satisfied. :)
