Pour mix on top of the base and cook in a pre heated oven at 160°for 50 minutes.
Let cake cool completely before placing in the fridge to cool, overnight will be better.
For the topping mix 80g of icing sugar with half a tsp of vanilla extract and 3 tbsp of lemon juice until you get a thick but slightly runny mix then pour over cake covering the top.
Then get some lemon curd and go over the cake a few times for decoration, put back in the fridge for 10 minutes before serving to stiffen slightly.
