Cooking: Lemon-Mint cake with Mango Creamcheese frosting

Today, I made a lemon-mint cake with mango cream cheese frosting. The cake is nice and light but I think that the frosting could have used some more sugar. The mint is more prominent but the lemon still comes through and nice and tangy. 

I basically glopped the "frosting" on. It was pretty thin. I put the cake in the fridge and the frosting hardened up a little. But the cake is cold. It's actually nice when its cold. 
I used the recipe from Sunshine and Smiles 
but I substituted olive oil for butter and used baking powder. It's nice and rich from the eggs. 
Mango Cream Cheese Frosting: Basically mango puree, cream cheese and some sugar. I didn't have an electric beater so I had to use a spoon. UGH. I didn't even have a spatula.
