Ascendance of a Bookworm Lemon Pound Cake (Gluten-Free)

In the anime, Ascendance of a Bookworm, the main character made a delicious pound cake. I decided to make a lemon cake version of it because I simply like the aromatic smell of lemon in desserts. I decorated the top of the bread with buttercream frosting and the bread tasted quite yummy.
