Lemon Cream Cake

I needed a quick to put together dessert for Mothers Day and this was what I came up with~
Lemon Cream Cake.
It's like Strawberry Lemonade in cake form:)
The lemon flavor is so light and fresh tasting it's like summer in a bite!

Heres what you'll need:

Yellow cake mix
3/4 c. lemonade concentrate
1/2 c. water
1/3 c. butter
3 eggs
lemon zest

Mix cake in usual way using these ingredients instead. Once mixed pour into 2 loaf pans and bake at 350* for 25 mins or until toothpick comes out clean. Take out and brush cakes with lemonade concentrate. Cool completely on cooling racks.

Whipped Cream

2 c. heavy whipping cream
2 T. sugar

Whip the cream 'til it starts to thicken then add the sugar slowly.

Assemble the cake by placing the first layer on plate. Spread with whipped cream and layer on chopped strawberries, brush with lemonade concentrate. Place this layer in the freezer for about 5 to 10 minutes. Then take the cake out and add the 2nd layer, top with whipped cream and strawberries. Brush lightly with the lemonade concentrate and place in the fridge to set for 30 mins.

This cake would be delicious with any kind of berries especially blueberries:)
Deliciously light!
