Sometimes, the world just calls for something pretty. I have a weird love for icing bags, and icing things in general. It’s one of my favorite things about baking, and I oftentimes try making something that can be iced (I’ve heard you can make cookies with an icing bag?!). However, I’ve lately seen multiple recipes circling around the blog sphere of Lemon Sticky Cake, basically a lemonbar without the crust. I’ve been wanting to try, but haven’t gotten around too. So, the other day when I realized I had a couple of lemons left that needed to be used before going bad, I was thrilled. And surprised. Wow, this cake was SO easy to make (honestly) and highly appreciated. As much as I love chocolate, it is nice to sometimes be able to switch it up, and this cake will definitely become my go to. But then, I realized, there was nothing to ice. So, I made a lime, cream cheese frosting to decorate it with, and used that as a substitute for serving it with whipped cream. I then went a little crazy with different sprinkles I found, just because sometimes you just need a cake that makes you happy. Again, there are multiple recipes on this cake – here’s my version. Enjoy!
