This moist, airy cake was my dad's favorite. My mom revamped the original recipe to include lemons. I'm not much of a baker, so I don't make it very often. But it is well worth the effort. —Trisha Kammers, Clarkston, Washington

Whenever I serve these lovely bite-size glazed cakes, they get rave reviews...and I get requests for the recipe. Lemon and cream cheese make for a winning combination.—Charlene Crump, Montgomery, Alabama
Lemon pie filling lends a splash of citrus flavor to convenient cake mix, and a rich cream cheese frosting gives it sweetness. My family likes this cake cold, so I cut it into squares and freeze before serving.

Want a change from chocolate cake? Try this elegant lemon cake...it's packed with refreshing lemon flavor, from the cake to the homemade lemon curd and creamy frosting. It won a blue-ribbon at an Alaska State Fair and it's definitely a winner with me.—Shirley Warren, Thiensville, Wisconsin
A sunny lemon-flavored cake is just the dessert to brighten up a gray winter day (or any day). Lemon peel provides a nice zing in every bite. A light glaze gives the tall, golden cake a delicate crust.
A refreshing lemon filling and fresh blueberries give this sunny dessert sensation plenty of color. Don't worry about heating up the oven—this trifle doesn't require baking. —Ellen Peden, Houston, Texas
