To make the lemon drizzle icing, mix the 225g icing sugar with the 1½ lemon juice. The consistency should be well, drizzle-able, if it’s too runny just add a bit more icing sugar. Be sure to stir well so there’s no icing sugar lumps- using a hand whisk helps with the lumps. While the cake is still warm, poke holes with skewer then pour over the icing. Let cool and serve.
