Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very easy and very good. Very easy and very good. You have to be careful when buying lemon cake mixes, some are good, some have a funny chemical taste from the artificial flavor. I also put the cake layers in the fridge and got them cold before attempting to assemble. Make the pudding according to these directions, not the box. Has to be thick, you might even wait a little for the pudding to thicken before spreading. Thaw the cool whip, I had no problems.

The pudding seemed to runny to hold the top cake on and it eventually just spilt into 3 pieces and slid off the bottom cake. My family still ate it just wasn't very pretty. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I did wrong? I let the cake cook and after I mixed the pudding I let sit for 5 minutes to make sure it was thick in consistency. I would like to try to make it again but don't want to go through the trouble if it will just fall apart again. Thanks

I wasn't sure if the cool whip would be "enough" for the outside of the cake...but it is enough! So light and delicious. Also, my cake was super moist. Everyone at work loved it. I added a tablespoon of lemon juice to the cake batter and a teaspoon of lemon juice to the pudding for extra lemon flavor. Great cake! Try it! Great job (again!) Kraft!

Just make sure you cover it (if you make it in advance)in fridge overnight or the whip creme gets a bit sticky. When I took it out of the fridge, in the morning for the afternoon, the whipped creme did not slide off. It was perfect!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from If you make this, I recommend using a 13x9 pan istead of the two cake layers as I did. If you make this, I recommend using a 13x9 pan istead of the two cake layers as I did. When I put the top layer on, it started slipping and sliding in the pudding that was atop the bottom layer. Also, the weight of the top layer squeezed out ALL the pudding from the bottom layer. It ran off the plate onto the countertop..... a real mess! Will not make again as its taste was just OK even without the mess. Definitely did not look like the picture.

I made it as the recipe said, except that I put all the pudding between the two layers rather than putting any on the top. I would suggest setting the Cool Whip out to thaw before spreading it as icing...that's what makes it easy to spread and beautiful to look at!

One of the reviews for this lemon cake asked if they could use lemon pie type filling instead of the lemon pudding. Yes! but you need to put a thin layer of icing on the bottom of each cake so that the lemong pie type filling will not saturate the cake. I feel the same way...Ineed a more tart type filling. I hope this helps!Giggi

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is my favorite summer cake recipe. This is my favorite summer cake recipe. It is light and sweet, and tastes great coming out cold from the fridge. It goes great with burgers. I only had to modify the whip cream because mine kept melting off the cake. I made my own thicker whip cream the second time I made it. My family loves July 4th cookouts now! :-)
