"This wasn''t bad but the cake was a bit too dense for my tastes. I thought it would be more flaky. It looked exactly like the picture though and people asked where I bought it!"

"I didn''t realize that you can only buy "heavy" whipped cream in specialty stores. I bought regular whipping cream and tried to make the icing TWICE and then realized that regular whipping cream doesn''t have a high enough fat content. The icing never came together and I couldn''t get it to form stiff peaks. I ended up using regular Betty Crocker icing and then it was just a boring lemon cake with icing. Not what I expected at all. The recipe should have stated that "heavy" whipping cream is between 36 and 40% milk fat."

"This salad is amazing! The dressing is VERY good. I didn''t shred the carrots and instead "julienned" them. I shredded them once before but I find when you julienne them, it almost has more of an "Asian" look. Putting half of the dressing on ahead of time really enhances the flavor. I don''t know why you couldn''t put it all on at once but I put the rest on right before I serve it and it''s quite good. Why change a good thing? This salad gets rave reviews! Try it!"

"This salad is a classic! I made it for Easter and it was a hit! I used snow peas instead of regular peas. Sometimes peas have a funny texture and the snow peas added a bit more crunch. Everyone loved it! Easy and so good!"
