Whether it's for a birthday, a bridal shower, or a very belated Father's Day celebration, a lemon layer cake is always sure to please; just ask YumSugar Community member Coltkels.

Graduation was great: not just because I got my diploma, but also because I got a KitchenAid mixer for my gift from my sister. I was ecstatic I could finally make cakes and whip egg whites. So when I was unavailable for Fathers Day, and ended up being 59 days late when my sisters and I decided to finally celebrate it, I figured the only way I could make it up to my Dad was with a homemade cake. This delicious easy lemon essence cake with cream cheese frosting will be perfect for any celebration!
