“This is made using a boxed cake mix. The recipe is from my friend Kate in KY, and these are her comments: "This recipe was posted by my friend Star on the TOH BB. The cake is wonderful. I actually made it into cupcakes, and they were a hit. I placed a 'blob' of lemon pudding on the top but not touching the sides and then put just a really thin layer of batter over that. I suggest the foil cupcake liners."”
