    Kozmic Blues's Note:

    These are sunny, bright and FULL of amazing lemony flavor! Are are 100% vegan! From: Veganomicon, The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook. This recipe uses rice milk for the cakes and soy milk for the frosting. I have made them using soy milk in BOTH, and they turned out just fine!

      hey, just made these. i had a terrible time with the frosting. it was way too runny, i used about 5 cups of powdered sugar, still pretty thin, but i used it to frost them. they're in the freezer now, trying to firm up. looking forward to tasting them, i love lemon! i will eliminate the milk in the frosting next time..

      I made these for a big family on Easter yesterday and they were a huge hit. They were all shocked they were vegan and so very light. The cake turned out perfect, light and mild in lemon flavor. The icing was a no go the first time as it separated and went clumpy when I followed the directions to the letter. I remade the icing by mixing the sugar with just a little milk, adding vanilla and more margarine. I figured the lemon was causing the separation so I omitted that. The result was a regular vanilla buttercream atop a delicious lemon cake. Will definitely make them again!
