I loved it, it wasn't to sweet or thick and and was soft and wasn't heavy! :D
Easy to make, wonderful flavor and eye appeal. Even my chocolaholics had 2nds. Thanks for sharing
This is such a wonderful cake!! This is my sisters favorite cake ever and I make it for her for her birthday. It's so yummy, I got the recipe from a tea room in Goshen, the lady there served it for my Grandmothers birthday. It's so yummy with the light lemon cake mix, sweet raspberry preserves, and a super sweet awesome lemon buttercream frosting. This cake rocks!
