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.

"My neighbor gave me the recipe for this refreshing dessert, but it was made with sugar and lots of whipped cream. I lightened it up for my diabetic husband, and it's difficult to taste the difference," assures Nadine Johnson of Clackamas, Oregon.
"I couldn't decide how to use the lemon curd a friend had given me, so I tried spreading it between layers of angel food cake," relates Marietta Eklund of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. "I topped each piece with strawberries. We loved it!"
Each year for my husband's birthday I make him a different lemon cake (a tradition started by his mother). A couple years ago I made a Lemon Crepe Cake and it was really good. This spring I added fresh strawberries and the cake was fabulous! I like to make the crepe batter and lemon curd the night before and assemble the next morning.—Lora Roth, Seneca, South Carolina
This lovely layered cake may not be made from scratch, but lemon curd filling and creamy frosting give it a gourmet taste. It's a refreshing change from chocolate holiday desserts.—Suzanne Earl, Spring, Texas
Lemon lovers will find this rich, glazed coffee cake absolutely scrumptious. The cream cheese in the middle is a wonderful surprise and nicely complements the tart citrus flavor.—Tessa Mabe, Toledo, Oregon
