For a refreshing, springy twist on white cake, stir in some frozen lemonade concentrate and top with a tangy yet sweet lemon butter frosting.

2 stars, easy to make, but not my cup of tea flavor-wise---I just have a lot of others I like better. Guests really liked it. Recipe for Lemon Butter Frosting is below the body of directions for making the cake, and that's easy to make, too.

The ingredients for the lemon butter frosting is exactly the same as that of the cake ingredients. Who would publish this HUGE mistake without checking for accuracy?

This cake is okay. I wouldn't say the best thing out there. It's pretty easy to make, but not very sweet.

There is no recipe for the lemon butter frosting...cake recipe is printed twice. It's that way for every recipe that has two recipes on this series. Why????
