We love lemon, so when we saw Patricia's recipe we knew we had to try it. This cake is light, moist, and so refreshing. The glaze adds a bit of zing and moisture. Mixing Cool Whip with the frosting makes for a silky smooth icing. Very easy to prepare, the cake is bursting with lemon goodness. The Test Kitchen
