Mother's Day Gift Idea....Yummy Lemon Cake

Posted by The Cashmere Bunny at 12:55 PM



There is something about Moms and something about lemons.  Both of them most people like.  I can’t imagine what we would do without our moms.  They make life better.  They refine us, tell us what we don’t always want to hear but know is true, and they love us unconditionally. Like a lemon they add so much by doing even a little.
This Mother’s Day I have a great Mother’s Day gift idea.  Why not make your mom a special cake.  Even if you aren’t a baker I promise you can make this recipe.  It is a great Mother’s Day gift idea and is will mean a lot to your mom because it came from you.  The ingredients are simple and you may have them already in your cupboard.  It is an inexpensive recipe that is easy to follow, very pretty, and extremely delicious. 
I found this recipe on the internet one day. A gal named V. Monte received this wonderful and easy recipe years ago from her mother n law.  Speaking of Mother n laws.  Don’t forget her either.  This is another great way to bless her and a creative yet simple Mother’s Day gift idea.
Yummy Lemon Cake (that’s what I call it)
Ingredients

·         1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix

·         1 (3 ounce) package lemon flavored gelatin

·         3/4 cup vegetable oil

·         4 eggs

·         3/4 cup water

·         1/4 teaspoon lemon extract

·         1 cup confectioners' sugar

·         4 tablespoons lemon juice

·          

Directions

1.    Combine gelatin mix and cake mix. Mix well.

2.    Add next 4 ingredients - oil, eggs, water and lemon extract. Mix lightly.

3.    Bake according to instructions on back of cake box.

4.    To Make Frosting: Combine confectioners' sugar and lemon juice.

5.    When cake is done, and while still hot, ice with frosting.


Along with the cake another Mother’s Day gift idea to make it perfect is to add a thank you letter from you.  Let your “Mom” in your life know you appreciate her and point out special memories you have of her.  Don’t focus on the bad but instead think of all of the good she has.  Thank her for who she has been in your life.  She will love the cake but will cherish your words!
So there you go.  A simple and fun Mother’s Day gift idea……..
