Anyones else have leftover frosting from the Nutella and Orange Cookies? Yeah, me too. Actually I gave you the 1/2 batch to what I made for that recipe, hopefully you don’t have any leftover. But I did. And I wasn’t going to let that pretty pastel frosting to waste. And honestly, what goes better with orange then lemon? Um. Nothing. What’s better then lemon cake? Um. Nothing.

I didn’t realize that I had just done a lemon recipe until I had already made everything and shot it. But I’m sure you won’t mind, will you dear readers?
