Very good! Made this for Easter and it was a big hit. Everyone wanted the recipe! Only changes I made were to the icing: I didn't use the butter flavoring and since I LOVE lemon, I used almost a tablespoon of rind.

A wonderfully moist and sweet cake! Turned out beautifully and didn't stick around long! Instead of baking it in a 9 x 13 in. cake pan I put it in a cookie sheet which served more for our potluck. Will definately make again.
