Ratings & Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from disappointing The title of this recipe implies it is a citrus cake, when in fact it is simply a white cake with colored filling. The shape is a nice touch, but I would rather present a delicious cake, than simply a cake surrounded by sliced fruit! Try making a bigger hit by using lemon cake, filled with lemon curd, & decorated with either orange/yellow sprinkles or colored sugar over cream cheese frosting!
