Lemonade Cake

So this lovely photo has been floating around Pinterest and Google Images. . .


and after finding the recipe involved a lot more time than I had,
I went here
and then adapted it {Hayley-style}
until we came up with this:

Oh, my, delish.

My cakes never turn out, so I gotta admit I was really excited.

Lemonade Cake

1 box white cake mix
3 egg whites
just over 1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup lemonade drink mix (I used Countrytime)
1/2 cup water
1 cup sour cream
2 t. vanilla
grated lemon zest

Mix together, pour into greased and sugared bundt / tub pan.  Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.  Cool on wire rack and turn out onto cake plate.  Cool for about 15-20 minutes and then frost while still slightly warm.

1/2 can cream cheese frosting
grated lemon zest
Stir lemon zest into frosting.  Using a spoon, frost only the top. The frosting will drizzle down the sides on it's own.
Top with more lemon zest.

We filled the center with blueberries . . .  Super yum!
