"Recipe by Tom Douglas. The icing for this cake is not a classic fondant, but an almost transparent powdered sugar glaze flecked with rosemary leaves and lemon zest. The rosemary is blanched first, to remove some of its pungency. For a less dressy cake, you could omit the fondant. Simply brush the cake with the lemon syrup and serve with sliced fresh figs or small bunches of grapes."

"Loved this! Yes, the cake was hearty, but perfect to end a light spring meal. Loved the rosemary/lemon combo. Thanks! —"
"The rosemary and lemon combination, which I love in savory dishes (like roasted chicken with lemon and rosemary) works really well in a desert too! The rosemary gives it a subtle flavor and aroma and looks really pretty in the fodant. THe people I made it for commented on the unique flavors and really liked it. I found the cake a little heartier than I expected. I would recommend it as a brunch cake instead of as an after-dinner dessert. Great recipe!"
