Welcome to the sunny side of dessert where lemon is the star of this moist cake. Martha Stewart, an American television personality, prepared it with John Barricelli on “The Martha Stewart Show” and it is perfect for festive occasions. Top it off with a whipped frosting that’s the perfect complement to the lemon cake.
