This lemon cake does not last any time at my house.  I barely have time to get the drizzle on and it will be half gone.  We love this cake and it can go anywhere anytime.  This cake is wonderful for any holiday event or gathering.  It is beautiful on a buffet or dessert table and tastes as good as it looks.  You can’t beat this cake with coffee served as a dessert and it is also good with milk.  It has just the right amount of lemon.  You might also like our Kentucky Butter Cake.
