    I love lemon! This cake is best if chilled for a few hours before serving.

      Loved this! The texture of the cake was very good, as was the lemon flavor. I did not use the lemon curd filling and I used a lemon buttercream frosting instead. Would definitely make again!

      SO GOOD! Expecially if you refrigerate overnight and eat the next day becuase the lemon curd, (which i made from another recipe) really sinks into the cake and flavors it even more. I used a raspberry creamcheese frosting and decorated with lemon shavings and raspberries on the top. I will definatly be making the recipe again, thanks!

      This cake was very good, very moist but not overly lemony. I think I overbaked mine a little, about 34 minutes, in 2 9inch rounds. So I would recommend no more than 30 minutes. I split each layer in half to make 4 layers and the cake was dense enough to hold up to that.
