Easter Lemon Cake

Well this was a fun day. First of all, I’ll say it again, I’m Jewish. Second of all, I’ll say it again, I don’t think it really matters if you have fun celebrating a holiday. So I started the day with a fun brunch for my family. The rest of the day was dedicated to constructed this recipe; a fluffy fragrant lemon cake. The decorations happened to turn out on the sloppy side, but honestly I only really care about the taste.
