Made this last nite for guests and it was very good!! You're right when you said it is a dense cake because it is!! But it was very moist. Everyone liked it but everyone had small pieces because of the density and sweetness. I will definitely be making this for our 4th of July bash!!
It was good but not great. It was not very lemony. The texture was good, dense and moist. I would add more lemon extract if I made it again. It was a very pretty cake with the pink lemonade icing on it.
