There are many versions of this recipe around. Mine is from my mother, and when she asked what cake I wanted for my 10'th birthday -- Lemon Jello! We've been eating this in my family literally all of my life. This version is great due to the tangy glaze. The glaze makes the lemon zing and it's soooo good.
