Lemon Cake with Lemon Filling and Lemon Butter Frosting

Reviewed: May 16, 2012
I did not care for this recipe. It doesn't raise. Its more like a soft cookie than a cake. The lemon cream icing is grainy, and the curd between the layers is far too tart. I made this for mother's day, and people didn't even finish the pieces they were served. I'm a cake baker, and cakes tend to go quickly at my house, but this one did not.

Blondie Caramel Heaven

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2012
Okay, I made this today, and it turned out very well. They key is to let it cool overnight and then its perfectly fine to cut into squares. I added pecans to the cake portion, and served it with vanilla ice cream drizzled with a thin caramel sauce, and they were a hit. I didn't have a 8x10 pan either, but I did it in a 9x13 and it was fine. I just sort of dropped the top cake layer over the caramel, and it all swirled and marbled like its supposed to look.

Butterscotch Pie I

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2011
This was the third cream pie I made. My Caramel was perfect, my lemon sublime, and then I tried this. I did not care for this. After cooking 45 minutes, it was still runny. I hoped it would thicken as it cooled -- it didn't. In addition to the runny texture, it was too sweet for my taste.
