My nephew requested that I make a lemon poppy seed cake for his bday. I usually make vanilla SMBC - would that work or is there something better I should consider?

I think a cream cheese icing would be tasty with lemon poppyseed

Lemon or a berry (raspberry, blueberry, strawberry) SMBC. If he's of age, a Chambord SMBC is super yum with lemon cake.

Cream cheese sounds good to me!

This is my very favorite recipe to go with lemon poppy seed cake. This only makes a small amount, so I always double it.

# 3/4 cup (11/2 sticks) butter, softened
# 6 Tbsp sour cream
# 1 lb confectioners sugar
# 1 tsp almond extract

It is amazing with lemon anything. icon_smile.gif

Our hands-down favourite icing with lemon poppyseed is caramel icing! It is brown so that will be a consideration but it's fantastic! Let me know if you would like the recipe.
