This has a great fresh lemon taste. Excellent for spring picnics. Or maybe even a potluck.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Unlike some lemon cakes, this recipe has a very lovely, light lemon flavor... just enough to satisfy. The icing glaze tops it off with just the right amount of sweetness, too. Perfect for a Spring afternoon.
