It's strange I know but my family will eat cupcakes better than cake so instead of a cake I do cupcakes and then stuff them with the lemon cream filling. My family loves them.

This is an amazing recipe! We think it is better than the OG original recipe. It is my "go to" cake recipe when I want to make a really good impression with guests.

I made this for our family 4th party. Got rave reviews! Hubby says I better memorize this because he wants it all the time now!

This cake was easy to make. It does take time though. I made it for my boyfriend's birthday because our favorite dessert is OG lemon cream cake. That is also his aunt's favorite cake. She told me that I will have to make this cake for every family gathering and holiday. She said to set aside the time to make this cause this is the only thing I will have to worry about bringing to the table. She said it may even be BETTER than Olive Garden's cake. VERY DELICIOUS!

Great recipe. Hint: to add more lemon flavor without changing consistency of filling, sprinkle in some Crystal Light lemonade powder. Does wonders!

This is the best cake I ever made! It is a spot on "best" copykat cake recipe I ever found for the lemon cream cake.

My relatives always talk about this cake and when I made your recipe, they had a hard time believing it wasn't the real thing.

I have made this cake several times and it is now a family favorite. I am always requested to bring it to family dinners. It is lucious.

I have made this cake on several occasions and there is only one word to describe it - fabulous!

Most of my guests who I have served it to have commented on it & also loved it.

I am not a huge fan of lemon-ny desserts but I find the lemon flavor very light. I think you should go a little heavier on the lemon juice or add a little lemon extract if you prefer more.

I only make 1/2 the amount of crumb topping as the recipe calls for. I find that more than enough.

Fantastic! I made it for a baby shower and it got rave reviews! I followed the TSRecipe exactly except for 2 things: I used a 9" springform pan and baked the white cake for about 45-50 minutes, and I used slightly more then 3 tbs of lemon juice (from the yellow plastic lemon). I had trouble making the crumb topping and put it in the refrigerator too long and ended up with larger crumbs then the OG cake, but you know what? - we loved it! I will definitely make this many many more times.
