      This is delicious! I used about 2/3 of the can of lemon pie filling in the cake.My only complaint is that the lemon sunk to the bottom. Next time I will try to swirl it in and see how that comes out. I didn't have canned frosting so I took the remaining 1/3 can of filling, mixed it with about 4 oz. of softened cream cheese and 3 Tbsp. of powdered sugar, and folded in 12 oz. cool whip. This made for a yummy topping. Thanks for the recipe. I'll be making it again.

      My Husband and I LOVED this recipe !!! It was so easy to make and turned out beautifully. I used lemon cake mix instead of white for an even lemonier flavor. It is delicious ! Thank you for such a great recipe !!
