Betty Crocker's Lemonade Party Cake

Kess and Kali went back to California for the school year and I guess I chose this cake to cheer myself up. The house isn't the same without those two comedians going at it. In fact, the place is a bit cheerless. If I wasn't on the "lose the baby weight so I get into the jeans I bought in a fit of hormones while pregnant" diet, I'd eat a piece of this cake just to cheer myself up.

  • 1 box of lemon or yellow cake mix
  • water, vegetable oil and eggs (as called for on the cake mix box)
  • 1 can (6 fluid oz) frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 container of white or lemon frosting
  1. Heat oven and mix cake according directions. Bake according to box directions.
  2. Mix thawed lemonade with powdered sugar. 
  3. Pierce top of warm cake every 1/2 inch with long-tine fork.
  4. Drizzle lemonade evenly over the top of cake. Run knife along edges to loosen cake. 
  5. Cover and refrigerate about 2 hours or until chilled. 
  6. The powdered sugar didn't mix all that well. This is the unfrosted view.
  7. Frost cake and serve.
