I was looking for the ideal lemon cake, and once I hit this one, I knew it was THE cake to bake. My grandmother got us stuck in a snowbank this winter, and we had to call him to get us out with his tractor. I promised to pay him back in cake, and he asked if I could make lemon. I said, "Absolutely!", and immediately started searching. THIS IS IT!!! The cake I baked for the neighbor looked so good I decided to bake one for us. Frosting was excellent with fresh grated lemon in it. My grandmother screwed up the lemon filling by not following the directions to a T, but somehow it turned out, with a perfect curded texture, to boot. I completed the appearance of the layer cake by putting candy lemons on the outside of the top layer, making an outer ring, and then joined four in the middle, making a four-prong star. The frosting underneath I had swirled into delicate waves, and once complete with the lemon candies, was absolutely AMAZING!!! This one is staying in my recipe box forever.
