    We love anything with lemon or lime, this was good!!!

    I have made this cake several times for gatherings. It has been requested several times as well. I put a different twist to mine though. Instead of the gelatin, I use pudding. I also like using lemon icing instead of the on the recipe. It is wonderful and a big hit at gatherings.

    It was pretty good. The topping could have been better but the cake was moist and I always enjoy lemon poppy seed desserts!
