I'm not usually fond of lemon desserts, but I made this for a graduation party open house. Everyone raved about it so I took a small slice. Wow! So light and creamy, really the best lemon cake I've ever tasted. I wish I had made two, so I would have had one waiting for me when I got home!

Light and refreshing. Next time I will make my layers of frosting in between thicker. I may also only make 2 layers instead of the 3. We loved it!

Absolutely delicious! Made this for Easter dinner at my brother's house. I did make a few changes/additions: I added some lemon extract & a little yellow food coloring to the frosting ingredients, and used lemon curd between the layers (instead of frosting). Also used raspberries & sugared lemon rind strips for garnish. Wonderful presentation, and soooo delicious. Thanks for posting -- I know I will make this again soon! -M =)

I was looking for something light for Easter dinner, and this looked good. It was smashing!!! Delicious, light and fluffy. Lemony, but not overwhelmingly so. Everyone loved it!

This was very good. My DS and DIL just raved about it. Said it was a 10 star recipe. Thanks for posting sharing this recipe.

This was amazing! I was looking for a recipe similar to the lemon cream cake at Olive Garden - and this was fairly close. I made it for my DH birthday - and it was gone by noon the next day (he being the one that ate most of it!) I'm actually making it again today to take over for a birthday dinner at his parent. THANKYOU...THANKYOU...THANKYOU!!!!

Absolutely delish. I used light cream cheese and instant pudding with no sugar. Big hit and easy to make. You could easily make the cake from scratch or use a pound cake also. Lovely!
