This is a good summery dessert. It is very fresh-tasting and seems light, although a glance at the ingredients will reveal that impression to be misleading. The cake was great and people enjoyed it, but there was one thing that bothered me a bit, which was the color of the cake. It screams YELLOW. I wish there was a way to reduce that fakey bright yellow. Maybe use a pudding rather than a gelatin, as another reviewer said that worked fine. Here are the changes I made based on other reviews:
1. Omitted water from glaze
2. Used a bundt pan
3. Reduced baking time by 4ish minutes
4. Poked holes in the top to allow glaze to penetrate.
5. Added the zest of 1 lemon & 1 tsp. pure vanilla to the icing.
Other than that, texture, recipe-ease and taste were all 5 of 5 stars. Thanks!
