"Made this cake for my husbands birthday yesterday, it was a hit! Followed some suggestions below and added fresh lemon juice to the cake mix & frosting (1-2 tbls.) Took the advice and raised the powered sugar to 1 full cup in the iceing. Also, I added blueberries and blackberries in between the cream cheese, whipped cream frosting... YUM, SUMMERY & FRESH, the blue & blackberries go so well with lemon. I decorated the finished, iced cake with the berries, it was awesome! Only 2 things will improve this recipe the next time I make it, first I will DOUBLE the iceing recipe, there was NOT enough icing to completely cover both the inside layers and the outside of the cake. I had to make a powered sugar icing for the top because I used all the recipe on the layer and outside. I love the lightness of the whipped cream w/ cream cheese & will double up recipe next time. Secondly, no matter what I did to the icing, it is not a solid enough consisitancy to ice a cake so that it looks pretty, adding one package of Knox Unflavored Gelatin to the icing recipe will solve that problem next time. This recipe is now a go-to favorite, my husband will definitely request this again. GREAT DESSERT or birthday cake in the summertime, ADD THE BERRIES, it was the bomb. I served it after his birthday lobster dinner, an awesome finish! "
