It's a cake mix recipe people!!...Cake mix!! IF this was a home-made cake that came out TASTING like it was boxed...I would understand the comments but it is what it is...a boxed cake recipe! Now, my cake stuck as well and I would probably suggest next time (since I am not the only victim) that after 5 minutes--remove cake from pan, place back into the pan, poke & THEN add glaze. Let cake cool. Cake should be fine after that. Stuck or not, I will DEFINITELY make this again! This is a nice, lemony, moist cake which is exactly what I want in my Lemon Cakes. I added fresh lemon zest to my batter. Please--Don't be put off by these comments about 'boxed taste'. Just be sure to use Brand Name products for best results. For baking, that should be a habit anyway. Personally, I love & commend fellow bakers who create "Doctored' Cake mix recipes. They're quick sweet treats for picnics, potlucks or when you want to take THAT recipe a bit further with your own imagination. I wish we would judge from that perspective. For the 2/3/2007 review...It takes a lot of 'chutzpah' to rate someone's recipe lower because you (and you ADMIT it) "were GOING to pass it off as home-made but the taste of the mix and the pudding came through. Hence the 4 stars." (unquote) WOW! Let me say that again...WOW! Translation: "I give it low marks because I CAN'T lie that I made it home-made". Trust me people...all will be impressed you made a cake mix cake--taste this good. WOW--(again).

If you like lemon meringue pie, you'll love this cake. I dropped the amount of sugar to 1/2 cup, as previous reviewers recommended, and heated the lemonade and sugar in the microwave for a minute to totally dissolve the sugar before pouring it on the cake. What a tangy, flavorful, simple cake! Thanks so much.

This cake is excellent to pull out of the frig on a hot day! I baked mine in 2 round cake pans. I placed one on a cake plate, poked the holes & poured topping, then placed the other on top and did the same. I combined the left over lemonade with powdered sugar and poured over the whole cake...wish I had poured some between the layers too. I decorated it with sliced lemons. The cake is extremely moist, beautiful, and everyone loved it. It is going in my list of favorites! Thank you!
