So easy and so delicious. This makes a wonderful mildly flavored, moist cake with a lovely lemon accent! I used the yellow cake mix option and added some lemon zest to the batter before I juiced it for the frosting. I made it in a bundt. Just lovely. Thanks for sharing!

When you think you heard of it all...well, ya didn't. Folks this cake was made with lemon gelatin, of all things. In the deep south it's pretty much the beginnings of spring and what better way to kick it off with this tantilizing little number with promises of what's to come. Every single member of my family gave this a 10*!

I make this same cake only use Lemon Cake Mix and omit the Lemon Extract. Key ingredient - using fresh lemons for the glaze and add the zest to the batter. Wonderful!

I've made this cake a few times. I love how easy it. It has a very good lemony taste. I have found that the glaze is not even necessary! When I did make the glaze, it was too thin for my preference, so I just added more powdered sugar. Definitely a keeper!

This was simple & delicious!! I didn't have lemon gelatin so I substituted with a packet of margarita flavored jell-o and it was fantastic!!! Other than that I followed the recipe completely. I used a bundt pan and it looked great. Will definitely repeat !

This is a very good cake. I added lemon zest to the glaze and baked it in a bundt pan. I love to take this to potlucks.
