i'm making a lemon cake with raspberry filling and would appreciate suggestions on an icing that would compliment the cake.
the person i'm making it for doesn't like rich dessert so i want to stay light.

I don't know how you were planning on decorating, but I have done this type of cake with cool whip and a batch of instant lemon pudding folded together as an icing.

3 sticks butter
1 cup sour cream
2 lbs powdered sugar
2 tsp almond extract

I use this with my lemon poppy seed cake w/raspberry filling..I think the almond really compliments both flavors, and the sour cream keeps it from being too sweet. HTH! icon_biggrin.gif
