Lemon Supreme Cake

Hi Motherhood on a Dime friends! I missed y’all last month! Things got kinda crazy in the Love Bakes Good Cakes house and I had to switch editorial calendars since it runs with the school year – and I didn’t transfer all of my info over (like blogs I contribute to!), so I completely forgot to post!! I apologize! If you haven’t been by my blog lately, our Summer has been filled with renovating our backyard! Since we live in Arizona, we figured it was almost necessary to have a pool …. and it is finally completed!! Now, we’re getting ready for the new school year to start – we homeschool, but keep a similar schedule as the local public school. Our first day of class will be this Thursday! Pray for us as we get back into the swing of things! :)

I have been on a lemon kick lately. You know those kicks that you just can’t seem to get enough of something?! That’s what I’m dealing with! Lemon everything!

This past weekend, we had a potluck with some of our neighbors and I wanted to take this Lemon Supreme Cake, but ended up taking cupcakes instead … they’re easier for the kiddos to grab! :) However, I made this cake for my lemon-loving family for our Sunday dessert! It really hit the spot! I hope you enjoy this as much as we did!
