Mix the granulated sugar and the lemon juice together, then spoon over the top of the cake, letting it drip down the sides. Let the cake cool completely before slicing.

  3. Potato ricer If you have one, use a potato ricer to mash your potatoes; it will give a fantastically light and fine texture.
