The taste is fantastic--I just wish the frosting didn't turn out lumpy. It still tastes great, but visually it's not as appealing...
Fresh Lemonade Cake

Lemonade cake sounded just delicious - and I liked that this recipe used all fresh lemon for flavor rather than anything processed. I'm not much of a baker, so I followed the recipe VERY carefully so I could bring something nice for a friend's birthday. It turned out great - light and tender with nice fresh lemon flavor, held together with a yummy creamy frosting. I got many compliments and the lemon was a welcome change from a lot of chocolate desserts.

I made this cake for a party last weekend and got rave reviews. Everybody loved it and it was all gone in no time at all, so much so that my husband never even got a taste! I had no problems with the frosting, it was not lumpy at all, it was beautiful. I did however make more of it, adding 50% to the recipe because I wanted to cover the whole cake. I then pressed fresh lemon slices onto the frosting on the side of the cake as decoration (and to hint at the flavor..). Next time, I would actually double the amount of frosting, I thought it could have done with a little more in between the two layers. If you decide to do the same, be advised though that the cake needs to be kept cold until serving, as the frosting will soften quite a lot once out of the cold.

This cake was soooo good. It was time consuming w whipping the egg whites and folding them in the batter and then making the lemonade syrup, poking holes and brushing it on, but it was well worth it. Best cake I've ever had/made and husband really enjoyed it. Will make again, for a special occasion. The icing didn't come out lumpy at all, I did have to really keep mixing it though and then it came together and became smooth.
