  1. My mother in law used to bake my husband his favorite cake for his birthday. It was a yellow cake with a lemon filling, iced in caramel icing. I rock at cooking the lemon filling, totally fail at the cooked caramel icing. I mean, it comes out like cement! Thank you for an alternative! Can’t wait to make his cake now!
