I made this cake for hubby's birthday and it was terrific!! To lower the calorie count, I used a can of diet 7up when making the cake. This replaces all the other ingredients in baking the cake; no, water, oil, eggs; just the 7up and the cake mix. You use light color soda for light cakes and dark color soda for dark cakes. Everything else I did the same except I used fat free pudding and milk. This was OUTSTANDING and no one even knew I used fat free products!!! I filled 7 requests for this recipe.



Excellent! I loved the flavor. It wasn't too sweet or too lemony...just right. I used two 8" round pans and stacked them. I put holes in the bottom layer and poured a bit of the gelitin mix, then stacked the top layer and did the same. It turned out great and looked so pretty on the table!



Oh man. Prepare your taste buds for a taste explosion; this recipe rocks the house. I am decidely NOT a cake fan, but after this recipe, I may change my tune. It's the perfect desert for a hot summer evening - light, creamy, lemony and delicious! This cake is so moist it will melt in your mouth. The lemon gelatin must be the secret; it baths the inside of the cake with the perfect lemon flavor. And that topping - sheesh -so simple, yet so good. Do it! This one is off the charts.
