*Yes, I am 27 years old and still call him "Daddy." :)
My dad is a boring cake eater. Of all the possible cake types and flavors to choose from, he goes and selects "White. Not too sweet" (his exact words, honest!). *Sigh* So I set out to recreate one of his favorite grocery store cakes: white layers, lemon filling, and whipped icing. I used a white cake mix, store-bought lemon curd and whipped icing mix (Wilton® brand--you only need half the box) to assemble this three layered beauty. Not quite from scratch but still made with love, he heartily approved of the final product. In fact, my mom has requested I make another one of these to send home with my aunts for Christmas, proving once again that you don't have to make everything from scratch or be a perfect "Martha" in order to put something tasty on the dessert table or make your family happy!
