To Decorate

  • Once the cake has cooled, remove if rom the tin.
  • In a small bowl, add your icing sugar, and gradually mix in the Gin until you get a thick pourable consistency. You don’t want it too thin, otherwise it will al run off.
  • Pour the icing over the cake, and sprinkle over some lime zest and add some lime slices for more decoration.
