Blue Ribbon Recipe

If you like lemon then this is the cake for you. As you can imagine, we couldn't help but taste-test at each level of preparation. What we tasted was so good that Krissi and I decided to donate the finished cake to a fundraiser for my grandson's school. They liked what they tasted too! Can't wait to make this again.
