Let cake cool completely. Can be made day ahead. Store at room temperature, covered airtight. This cake does not freeze well.

Tart Lemon Glaze : Combine lemon zest and sugar in blender or food processor and process until zest is finely minced. Add lemon juice, butter and salt. Blend until smooth. Set aside at room temperature until ready to use. Makes 1/2 cup.
