Deeelicious! Very little aftertaste... great texture and presetation. The tart frosting is a wonderful and tangy surprise. Fun to eat!

The lemon icing complements the chocolate cake - yum!

Hard to believe this is low-fat! Nice consistency between moist and dry. Like a chocolate cupcake. The lemon glace was really tasty!
