This was the very first cake I ever made with my Grandma Effie. I must have been about 10 years old then. We both knew how much my daddy loved Lemon Pie and I wanted to make him something different using lemon....and this is the cake I made. It was yummy! But what made it all worth it....was to see my daddy smile and lick his lips. Well since then Grandma Effie died in 1982 and daddy died in 2001....but every time I make it I SMILE and LICK my lips....memories are a wonderful thing!
