Lemonade Cake

I’m sorry I didn’t post this over the weekend but this is a great spring/summer dessert that everyone will love! Its also very easy...

1 box lemon cake mix
1 cup frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
1 cup powdered sugar
1 container lemon frosting

Preheat oven to 350.

Prepare and bake cake as directed on package in greased 13 x 9 pan. Let cool 15 minutes.

Stir together thawed lemonade concentrate and powdered sugar. Poke holes on warm cake with fork. Drizzle lemonade mixture evenly over cake. Refrigerate cake until cold.

Spread frosting over cold cake and serve.

Cover and refrigerate leftover cake.

Ingredients: Yes, that is sprite and vanilla ice cream!

Prepare the cake according to package directions BUT I learned this little trick from my friend Heather who took a cake decorating class - use sprite in place of water and once everything is mixed, add in a scoop of softened vanilla ice cream and mix into the batter just before baking. It makes a very good cake! And you can do this with ANY cake flavor!

Bake the cake according to package directions - looks good to me!

While the cake is cooling, mix one cup of thawed lemonade concentrate and 1 cup powdered sugar.

Use a fork to poke holes in the cake while it is still warm.

Pour the lemonade/powdered sugar mixture evenly over the cake.

Then refrigerate until cake is cool. I prefer to do this overnight if possible but it will be cool after 3-4 hours.

Once the cake has fully chilled, spread lemon icing over the top and serve!

Unfortunatley this is not type of cake you can take out of the baking pan and put onto some cute serving dish. It must be served directly from the pan. Makes the whole thing pretty easy!
