The cake stayed moist, which is what I was going for. The flavor was great, very lemony. I did not frost because I don't care for frosting.

A little too lemony for my tastes. I thought it was a little sour and I made it exactly as directed. Others in my family who love lemon desserts were pleased, though. It was easy enough to make and I loved that it was chilled.
