      I made this for my sweetheart's birthday yesterday. This is a very impressive recipe, both from flavor standpoint and in appearance. The layers are elegant and the lemon taste is perfectly balanced. Worth the effort to make it and I suspect it will be requested often. Thank you for a great recipe! I would probably see about a raspberry sauce next time to add a contrasting flavor as well, but in no way does this recipe need improving. It is perfect.
