Lemon Bundt Cake

I signed up to bring dessert to chorus rehearsal this week and decided to make the Lemon Bundt Cake recipe from a recent issue of Cook's Illustrated. Very lemony, although a little denser than I'm used to. Almost like a pound cake. Anyway, no one complained. Had a little bit of a panic when I ran out of powdered sugar making the icing. The recipe calls for you to pour on the icing in specific timed intervals and I didn't want to run out to the store and leave the cake to burn in the oven. I took the cake out of the oven, drove the 4 blocks to the nearest grocery and made it back only 90 seconds late. Cake drama.
