Easy to make. Even easier to eat! I followed the recipe exactly. It will seem like the cake is drowning after you add the lemon jell-o the but the cake soaks it up while resting in the fridge and becomes very moist. A great summer dessert recipe.

I was not happy with this recipe. The only thing I changed about it was making it as a 9x13 cake. It was a little soggy and the topping was too runny. I took it to a picnic with a lot of people and only half the cake was eaten. I will not make this one again.
