the most delicious part of this cake is the lemon butter cream frosting is tasty ...i use real butter ....the presentation is equally as beautiful and the cake is very moist and sinful =)

Very simple to make. I also garnished the base of the cake with fresh pineapple chunks and maraschino cherries. I kept it in the fridge because of the fruit. Very nice presentation.
