Paska often has a citrus component that you'll find in many recipes but, it's also often served with icing like Linda at Let Them Eat Cake and Ice Cream remembers her grandmother serving it to her as a child.  That's right... Paska with Icing! What a treat. (appropriate for a blog called Let Them Eat Cake, no?)
