- 1 1⁄2 cups unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1 lb organic powdered sugar
- 3 teaspoons lime zest, reserve the juice for the glaze below (about 3 medium limes)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 6 large eggs
- 2 1⁄3 cups cake flour, sifted
- 3 teaspoons powdered lemon flavoring (available from King Arthur Flour Company)
- 1 cup organic powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon powdered lemon flavoring
- 5 teaspoons fresh lime juice
