I made this cake for a 4th of July potluck for work. It's pretty good but, like other reviewers, not as moist as I'd like. The only change I made to the cake recipe was the addition of about 1 Tbsp. of lemon zest to the cake batter to give it more of a 'real' lemon flavor. I have to say to be careful with the baking time - I just happened to check the cake after 45 minutes and it was DONE. I can't imagine how it would have been with the additional 15 minutes! For the glaze, I followed the directions exactly and had no issue with sticking. I do use the pan spray with flour (i.e., Baker's Secret or other brand). I did make an additional drizzle of a white glaze (same as that poured over the cake but thicker) for a more decorative look. This cake tastes fine but, again, it's not as moist as I'd like.
