"How did you get the dessert to hold together? Mine fell apart it was like pudding? It did not mold. Please let me know"
"I made this recently for a Bridal shower. Wonderfully cool dessert on a hot summer day. I could not find lady fingers in my area so I substituted angel food cake slices. I also used s/f pudding. Everyone loved it, I will be adding this to my recipe box for when I'm looking for a quick dessert that's refreshing."
"I love lemon so I was thrilled to make andenjoy it"
"I will make this dessert. The only thing I would do differently is use cooked pudding. I don't like the lack of smoothness derived by using instant puddings. I recognize the ease of them it's just a personal preference."
"I, too, made homemade ladyfingers. They're impossible to find around here! The dessert was very good, even with the substitutions I had to make (s/f lemon pudding and regular creamer). Makes a lovely presentation, also!"
