Lemony Goodness Cake

All I have to say is Corey loves any dessert that is lemon flavored, and he definitely loved this cake. The icing is definitely the best part, so be ready for a lemony goodness taste explosion in your mouth!

Lemon Cake
1 pkg. white cake mix (and ingredients to prepare according to mix directions)
1 fresh lemon, zested and juiced
1/2 can lemon pie filling

1/2 can lemon pie filling
1 (8 oz.) tub cool whip, thawed
1 lemon, zested and juiced

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Mix in juice and zest of 1 lemon.
3. Layer 2/3 of cake batter in greased 9x13 pan.
4. Over the top of the batter, drop half of the can of lemon pie filling in small dollops. Top with remaining cake batter.
5. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes, or until cake is lightly browned and bounces back when touched in the center. Cool completely.
6. Fold together remaining half can of lemon pie filling, cool whip, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Spread over cooled cake. Garnish with lemon slices, strawberries, or raspberries as desired. Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to 2 days.

So it makes great cupcakes, but me being the brilliant and talented person I am...forgot to put the lemon in the cake mix. :( But the frosting really is amazing!
