    Cupcake-Princess's Note:

    I just made this for my Grandma's 80th birthday. This cake is very moist and not to sweet. Make sure to use my favorite lemon curd recipe to fill the cake with.....Martha Stewart's Ca. 1995 Best Lemon Curd.

      This is a seriously good lemon cake. The cake itself is very moist and would stand great alone , but the addition of the lemon curd filling makes it something special. The icing is delicious with just a hint of lemon. Next time I make this I will increase the amount of icing by half so that I have some left for piping some trim. I have had to give this recipe to 3 people in the birthday group I made it for - it was a big hit.
