My husband’s grandmother used to make him a lemon cake for his birthday. He loved it and her so much. (She was a great, Godly example to he and his brothers and was an amazing prayer warrior.) This year, for his birthday, I decided to make my husband a lemon cake. I’m not the great baker that his grandmother was, so I had to cut a few corners. Even still, the reaction I got from the cake told me that it was still delicious and a recipe that I will definitely use again.
I bought a Betty Crocker Super Moist Lemon Cake Mix and prepared it according to the package directions.
For the frosting, I used a recipe I found on www.allrecipes.com

Lemon Frosting Recipe:
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 cups confectioners’ sugar
- Combine the butter, lemon juice, vanilla, and confectioner’s sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Add more confectioner’s sugar, or lemon juice to adjust the consistency as needed.
