  1. Izy, that frosting job on the top of the cake is just WOW! Can’t wait to read your interview and the recipe–I love the seedy looking inside of that gorgeous cake!

    • Thanks Erika 😉 I can’t frost cakes very well so I have to just go for swirly/ ‘rustic’ frosting every time hahah

  2. Congrats on the Spenser feature!! What a great interview (and a ridiculously awesome cake)! It still amazes me that I used to loathe the combination of lemon and poppy seeds. Now I love the flavor and the crunchiness, and I just can’t even imagine how I could have possibly hated it.

    Also, I hope you had a great Easter!! 😀

    • Thanks Carey!! I used to absolutely hate lemon desserts, but now lemon glaze is. My. Life. So good with the poppy seeds :))

      You too! i was drooling over your menu that you put up on your blog!! But yes I did indeedy, ate lots of chocolate (that basically ensures it’ll be a good day) haha,

  3. Awesome, congrats lady!!! I love the little swirl in the glaze on top, how did you do it? With a rubber spatula?

    • Thanks so much Eva 🙂 I used an offset spatula – you use it to make a c shape, starting at the edge of the cake moving into the centre and just repeat, working your way around the whole edge of the cake (I found the method from Naomi at Balers Royale on her banana dulce dw leche cake)

  4. Oooh Spenser magazine eh? Big well done to you, miss lovely lady 🙂
    Also, I’ve got to say – I’m totally loving all the props in this shoot; from the choice of driftwood-esque backdrop, the lace doily, mismatch cutlery, black plates and editing makes the whole ensemble have a delightfully rustic feel to it. Massive love for this creation x x

  5. Good on ya Izy! Loving your citrus obsession and lovely swirl effect on the top. Stunning pictures as always 🙂

  6. Ooh, congratulations! I’m not surprised they wanted to feature your gorgeous recipes and photos 🙂

  7. This looks delicious!!! I might make this for my gran this weekend- Lemon is always a winner 🙂 xx

  8. Madam lemon dessert strikes again! Congrats on the feature in Spenser’s mag, so cool.

  9. These are some gorgeous pics Izy! And I LOVE the frosting technique. I always say I suck at frosting too so I’m all about the easy methods (you say it’s easy, I’m not so sure…)!
