Easy Lemon Cake
I made this cake for Easter Sunday. I used lemon mix instead of yellow b/c my family loves lemon. The cake was good. It was best right out of the oven and then a few days later. The days between, I didn't really care for it. I also loved the icing...I doubled it b/c I loved it so much.

Mandarin Orange Cake I
I love this cake! (also known as Pig-Pickin' Cake!) It is delicious...when I made mine, I accidentally bought lemon mix instead of yellow mix. It still turned out delicious. Its really fun to think of all the combinations that can be made with this recipe! (Try lemon pudding or pistachio pudding instead of vanilla...etc!)I wish that I could taste the madarin oranges but I can' okay, though b/c the cake is great no matter what! Next time, I may use half pineapple and half mandarins in the icing? I'll let you know how that one works out! **Make sure you keep the cake refridgerated...its great year round, I'm sure, but especially on a hot summer's day!!** **Another hint: Try draining the pineapple juice and use only about 2/3 to 3/4 of it in the icing to keep it from getting runny...ESPECIALLY if you use fat free or light whipped topping!!**

Chocolate Covered Cherries
As always, I made a slight modification just to make things easier: I bought tubs of the microwavable dipping chocolates that is now available in most stores to dip the cherries in. Here is a very helpful tip: Buy the mini-muffin/cupcake/candy cups to place each cherry in after dipping. I found mine at Michael's craft store but I know they have them in grocery stores, as well. I think it looks nice to use these when presenting them, especially if they are in a candy box. Also, it is helpful if you dip the cherry and place it directly into the cup...because when you pick the cherry up from whatever surface, there is a spot where the chocolate doesn't cover and the juices from the filling will seep out. What happened to me the first time round with this recipe was this: I placed the dipped cherries onto wax paper to dry. Then, I moved the cherries from the wax paper into my container. The filling seeped out through the bottom part of the cherry that had touched the wax paper and there was no chocolate there. So, it helps to put them into the candy cups directly after dipping them. Hoped this all made sense!
