Reviews for Lemon Velvet Dessert
"Not a strong lemon flavor at all, and it is thick in the mouth and hard to swallow, (too much cream and cream cheese) even though I made the portions smaller (recipe yeilded 11 little cups instead of 8) some guests left part of it and I couldnt eat more than half of mine. I was dissapointed."
