Top Review by True Texas

This cake has a great lemon flavor, very tart. The thing I was a little confused about was why it was made like a poke cake. The icing is very, very thick and even though you spread it on the cake when it is hot it did not penatrate the cake at all. Also my cake did not rise very much, I make in a 13x9, but just did not rise as much as I expected. Good flavor though.
