Yummy!!!! Can't wait to try it!!!! I'm thinking a strawberry BC might be lovely for icing!!!!!

Nicol Says... 2009-10-12 06:29:56

I am going to try this with whipped cream icing. Strawberry and lemon slices for garnish.

Reesy Says... 2009-10-12 08:28:54

kathy777 Says... 2009-10-12 09:34:23

did you use a icing on it?and if so what did you use BC or Cream cheese frosting?

KelsiJewel Says... 2009-10-12 22:15:19

I used BC and put a lemon cream filling in the middle

My daughters birthday is Sunday I would love to make this. How did you make the lemon cream filling

ShelleyMJ Says... 2009-10-28 12:15:41

This is YUMMY! I made this cake for a co-worker and brought it to work this morning. It is gone! Thank you for sharing the recipe. I used strawberries for my filling and whipped cream/buttercream frosting! Huge Hit!

Thank you!

I made this cake. I personally did not enjoy it much, but everyone who tasted it did!!! I took one cake to work and my husband took the other one. The cakes disappeared very fast at two different places! My husband absolutely loved it because is so different than every cake cake out there. Thanks for the recipe. It's a keeper!

I made this for my daughter's bday and it was a hit! I just used Wilton's buttercream icing recipe and it was great!

The Lemon Supreme cake mix (Duncan Hines) calls for 3 eggs. Would you still add the 4 eggs with knowing this?

Great cake!!!! My kids loved it! I used strawberry buttercream to ice and fill then wrapped it in fondant. Looked and smelled wonderful when we cut into it.

This cake is AWESOME! I made cupcakes out of this to take to my family's for Easter. Garnished each one with a half of a strawberry and a quarter slice of lemon - they were adorable to boot. Everyone loved them!:)

Ozzysmom Says... 2010-04-09 18:24:51

can I just say WOW!, I made this cake for Easter, I covered it with cream cheese BC, everyone loved it, staying one of my favorites, thanks

Misha Says... 2010-04-12 12:19:20

The cake by itself tastes like Fruit Loops cereal so to balance it out, I used Coconut Cream Frosting. PERFECT!! Everyone loved it.

What a great summer-time celebration cake! Thank-you so much and I recommend giving this cake a try!!! I used the Lemon Curd Buttercream as a filling and strawberry flavored buttercream for the outside. This was my first time using lemon curd...it was fun! It such a nice surprise for a cake....thanks.

Does anyone know if this recipe is dense enough to carve slightly and cover with fondant and stack??

AC7417 Says... 2010-07-20 17:51:27

Does it have to be the lemon supreme cake mix or can it be a comparable cake mix like betty crocker super moist lemon?

RUTHIE29 Says... 2010-07-23 04:07:51

response to fairmaiden: no it is not a dense cake

Meagan0079 Says... 2010-08-06 11:10:43

I didn't care for this cake and, unfortunately, the person I gave it to didn't either! You never know until you try! Happy baking :)

Monicaaa93 Says... 2010-08-28 16:47:15

Great recipe but a little to fluffy for large fondant cakes. Crumbled very easily. Tasted great!

KDFcreations Says... 2010-08-29 18:23:53

My cake hardly rose. It's insanely dense...any suggestions as to what could have gone wrong?

fairmaiden0101 Says... 2010-10-01 22:22:14

Ok, I have experimented and made this cake, carved it, covered it in fondant and have stacked it-worked perfectly. I do suggest after taking it out of the oven and while it is still hot, to put a tea towel on top of the cake and lightly press down, this will help made a denser cake. Taste was lovely, everyone said it tasted just like a strawberry lemonade drink. I made a buttercream with lemonade concentrate and a strawberry filling..yum!

tarodoeht Says... 2010-10-02 16:45:13

I'm making this recipe as a batch of cupcakes right now. I hadn't yet decided what type of icing to top them with and I had a few choices, so I waited for the first batch, broke one up and passed it around to the men of the house and they couldn't figure out if they tasted the lemon or the strawberry first. They really like it, I really like it, now for us to decide on what kind of icing to use! Thanks!

bakersmurf Says... 2011-02-06 13:14:17

This was a quick great recipe. I'm trying them with cupcakes next. Thanks for posting!

ladyk1am Says... 2011-04-01 15:59:35

This is delicious! Sweet and Tart - a great compliment to Buttercream. Definitely will be my Featured Spring Flavor!! TFS!

fairmaiden0101 Says... 2011-07-22 15:24:28

I had to come back and say that this is my most requested flavor-it is just awesome! I make mine with strawberry IMBC and have had nothing but rave reviews. I have made this in cupcakes, carved cakes, and cake pops..it rocks all around!

mbark Says... 2012-05-18 08:21:26

This is absolutely delicious!! Who would guess such a simple recipe would yield such fabulous results. I was hesitant reading a few of the reviews but was totally impressed (and I'm very picky!). I made cake pops the first go-round and they are my new favorite flavor. I just love the combo of the tart and sweet lemon and strawberry.

Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us. I made this recipe for my friends wedding this past weekend, and it was a hit. Very fresh summer flavor. Thanks again
