  • This was yummy with the lemon

    This was yummy with the lemon icing but mine came out very dense. I did use Quirky Jo's Gluten Free flour mix...but was wondering if it is dense with normal flour too? I made a yummy lemon icing with coconut oil, decicated coconut, soaked cashews, lemon juice & honey to taste. Drizzled it on, its a bit thicker than normal icing but yummy.
