Luscious Lemon Layer Cake

Get your pucker ready for the most deliciously Luscious Lemon Layer Cake you’ve ever tasted! Moist layers of a tender crumb lemon cake topped with a fluffy lemon cream cheese frosting.

Earlier this week I mentioned that I was up to my eyeballs in cake baking last weekend. It began with a basketball themed cake for Paul’s son’s basketball team. Then I whipped up a batch of some Delicious Cookies and Cream Cupcakes. Finally this Luscious Lemon Layer Cake for my nephew’s birthday. It was a weekend full of celebrations.

My nephew was celebrating his Sweet 16 and requested a Lemon Layer Cake. I was a little surprised at the request because he’s normally a chocolate lover. In the past I’ve either made him my Chocolate Blackout Cake or Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake. Not this year though. He wanted lemon!
