    Storage and Handling

    This product is perishable and ships chilled. Upon arrival, freeze for later use or thaw fully to room temperature before serving. Once thawed, serve within approximately 12 hours. Product arrives with a glazing recipe and instructions.

    Glaze recipe:

    6" cake: 1½ cups sifted powdered sugar & ¼ cup of Meyer Lemon Juice & Lemon Zest

    9" cake: 3 cups sifted powdered sugar & ½ cup Meyer Lemon Juice & Lemon Zest


    1. Before juicing lemons, remove zest from one lemon with a microplane into a bowl over powdered sugar.

    2. With a skewer, poke 10-12 holes in the cake (so glaze will soak into the cake).

    3. Halve and juice lemon/s into the bowl and whisk into the powdered sugar/zest. Pour over the center of the cake, and tilt the cake back and forth until the top is evenly covered, and there are drip lines going down the side.

    Our Process

    Chef Becky makes our Meyer Lemon Cakes in small batches to ensure the best possible quality. Unlike the lemons you might find in a typical lemon cake, the sweet, floral qualities of Meyer Lemons (a cross between a citron & mandarin) make this cake uniquely delicious and flavorful. We puree whole meyer lemons and gently fold them into our buttermilk batter. The aroma always makes us all crave a slice! Perfect for any time of day, this cake is a wintertime favorite.

    Our Meyer Lemon Cake tastes best when topped with a generous pour of sweet lemon glaze, which can be easily made with a blend of powdered sugar and freshly-squeezed lemon juice. Please review our quick and easy glaze recipe (included in your order) and follow glazing instructions before serving.

    Unfortunate Meyer Lemon Cake experience

    The cake arrived swiftly but ten days before Christmas Eve when we were serving it. We left it wrapped tightly in plastic as it came. On Christmas eve i made the frosting and followed the directions . ( the lemons that had arrived in the box packaging had frozen and thawed so were squishy so i had to toss them and use some that we had) I was excited to try the dessert with our famialy after dinner. The cake was dry and crumbly. I am sorry this was our experience. We spent nearly 90.00 to order this cake.
