There are 2 possible glazes for this cake:
1). Mix 1-1/4 cup confectioner's sugar with 1/4 cup lemon juice and 1 tsp. vanilla until smooth.
2). Boil together 1/2 cup honey, 1/4 cup lemon juice and 1 tablespoon butter.
Drizzle one of those glazes over the cake.
A "half-back" friend from Florida gave me this recipe. She used her own lemons for the glaze that she had just picked out of a tree in her front yard. A "half-back" is a yankee who has become a snowbird in the winters and finally settled for halfway back, in the mountains of NC.
