This is a wonderful variation on the Four-Layer Dessert that I usually make. The family was really pleased with the taste of the lemon, and I'll bet adding a layer of raspberries or blueberries would be a perfect touch with the lemon. Oh! Just thought of banana pudding with a layer of fresh bananas. You could try this with whatever flavor instant pudding floats your boat and whatever you'd like to add as part of your layers.
