Delicious Lemon Cake

 250g butter, softened
2 cups sugar
6 eggs
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 cup sour cream/greek yoghurt
4 tbsp lemon rind

Cream butter and sugar and add eggs one at a time. Mix thoroughly. Fold in remaining ingredients and bake at 160 degrees for an hour.

For the lemon buttercream, mix 100g softened butter, 200g icing sugar, 1 tablespoon lemon rind and 100g cream cheese. Add 1-2 tbsp water to thin the icing down if too thick (it will pull the cake and you will end up with crumbs all through the icing).
