The cake alone has a soft lemon taste. Its not too sweet not too tart. I have a Lemon Butter Cream Frosting recipe you can use with this too. It gives it a huge lemon/sugar punch.

I made these for my daughters 6th birthday and they were a huge hit. You can replace the lemon with any other citrus flavor!
