Starbucks Iced Lemon Pound Cake

Lemon Pound Cake is one of my favorite baked goods! A while back Starbucks took their delicious Iced Lemon Pound Cake off the menu. Oh the horrors! There was a backlash and Starbucks realized that people really like the familiar sliced cake! Within a short amount of time, the baked goods were back on the shelf. If you love their yummy pound cake you are going to love this recipe!
