This is the glaze that I used on a recently created pound cake when my daughter Briana came home to visit for the weekend. I had told her about the cake, but she had never tasted it. The first two that I made , I served them plain to savor all of the citrus flavor in the cake. This time I wanted to add a glaze & see the difference. My daughter & I prefer it much better with the glaze.

It has a more intense citrus flavor with the glaze, & the grated orange zest complimented the cake just beautifully. We loved it, then garnishing the top with the sliced oranges dressed it up in an elegant way

How to Make LEMONADE CITRUS GLAZE

Step-by-Step

  1. Add all of the ingredients to a medium size bowl, then blend with a hand mixer or large spoon. Mix together and add more lemonade concentrate to increase the intense lemon flavor for a thinner consistency, or heavy whipping cream as desired to reach the spreading consistency needed for cake. Can add additional powdered sugar if a THICKER GLAZE IS DESIRED.
  2. Gradually drizzle over cake in desired pattern, or glaze complete cake. I have done both.
  3. Garnish with fresh citrus fruit, using lemons limes or oranges or a combination of the three as desired. This is the link for the cake portion of the recipe, LEMONADE CITRUS POUND CAKE
