“Two of my favorite cakes are Black Russian cakes and a delicious Margarita Cake. I used them as an inspiration for this extremely moist and lemony cake. I made it for a friend's birthday and everyone loved it! For an extra kick you could add a little vodka to the glaze. I found that a cooking spray with flour in it (now sold for baking) was convenient and it worked great at preventing the cake from sticking.”
