How much is too much?

lemonI recently had a friend request a cake for a weekend at the lake with his cycling friends.  Nothing keeps you fit like a really long bike ride followed by a gigantic piece of cake!

My friend wanted a lemon cake.  How lemon-y?  The challenge was as lemon as I could get it!  While baking the cake layers I added extra lemon flavoring to the normal lemon taste.  When it came to the icing I found myself measuring in tablespoons instead of teaspoons.  I kept adding and tasting, trying to find the point just before the lemon would turn bitter.  I ended up with a really strong lemon taste but I was pleased with the balance of lemon to sweet.  My friend said it was excellent as all his friends raved about it.Super Lemon Cake
