A Sweet Zuchinni Bread Gift

Made this bad boy for my parents yesterday. Thought instead of bringing a piece of bread, I would wrap it all nicely to make it an official gift. See recipe below!
To make the bread:
Mix together 3/4 cup of brown sugar, 2 eggs and 1 stick of butter in large mixing bowl. Add in 1 shredded zucchini, 1 tsp salt, 1 tbsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 2 1/4 cup of flour and 1 tsp of vanilla extract.

Preheat oven to 350. Add your batter into greased bread tin. Bake for 45 minutes. Let cool.
To make frosting:
Mix together 2 cups powdered sugar, 2 tbsp of heavy whipping cream, 1 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp of lemon juice. Mix and spread on cooled bread.
Let dry and cover with plastic wrap. I made this gift tag on and taped it lightly on top of my bread. Then, I just wrapped it in Xmas ribbon.
