This was a good moist cake bead. I think I added too much glaze, but it was very good still. It has a great lemon flavor and the rosemary adds just a hint of something else. I used the glaze on some cookies too. I also chopped my zest so I didn't end up with these long strings. Made for Photo tag, sorry for the delay. Thanks! :)
