There are a handful of Mr. Food's creations my family loves. This is one of them! I like making this in the summer. Lemon and cream cheese equal summertime for me.

I love just about anything with lemon and so does my wife as long as the lemon isn't overpowering. These were perfect for us. I didn't have a yellow cakemix in my pantry but I did have a white one with pudding. I can't wait to try it with a yellow mix. Thanks for posting !
