    Description: A really beautiful looking cake. Nice contrast between the white cake and the deep Lemon yellow color frosting and nice lemony filling. This is a real treat for lemon lovers.

      Bake in 3, nine inch layer pans in preheated slow oven 325ºF for 15 minutes, then increase heat slightly to 350ºF and bake 15 minutes longer or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
    7. 7
      Cool cake completely on wire racks.

      Note: For those afraid of eating raw egg you can do this to make the egg yolks safe: In a heavy saucepan, stir together the egg yolks and liquid from the recipe (at least 2 tablespoons liquid per yolk); cook over very low heat, stirring constantly, until the yolk mixture coats a metal spoon with a thin film, bubbles at the edges or reaches 160 degrees F, as measured with an instant read thermometer. Immediately place the saucepan in ice water and stir until the yolk mixture is cool; proceed with the recipe.

      I just made this for Fat Tuesday. The King Cake I make uses 5 yolks and this recipe uses 5 whites. Perfect match! I colored each layer a Mardi Gras color and used rainbow chip frosting between layers and on top and part way down on sides. This cake received rave reviews from our guests too!!!
