It’s getting warmer everyday, and all the fresh fruit that I love is in season again so it’s only natural that fruits like lemons, limes and oranges are indispensable ingredients in many of our favorite warmer weather sweet and savory foods.

First follow the directions below to put your cake in a 9×13″ pan. After allowing to cool for a few minutes, use the handle of a skinny handled wooden spoon and poke holes in somewhat straight lines. The more evenly spaced the holes, the more evenly the pudding will distribute through the cake.

This is a simply blissful icing. It’s sweet, but not too heavy. I love using the star tips and piping on the adorable dollops. They really dress it up!  If you’ve never used one they’re super easy.  A few practice tries, and you’ll be a pro. Of course, you can easily smooth it on with a spatula without changing the flavor very much too 🙂 Just kidding! You may also want to try our 3 Ingredient Greek Yogurt Cake Mix Recipe.
