Your summertime picnic isn’t the same without a dessert to end a great meal. This cake is sure to be a showstopper for any sunny picnic gathering.

Ingredients: For the cake

3 boxes cake mix, flavor of your choice

Food dye, colors of your choice

Ingredients: For the icing

8 ounces unsalted butter

4 cups powdered sugar

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 tablespoons lemon zest

2–4 tablespoons milk

Pinch of salt



  1. Bake the cakes according to instructions on the boxes, and let cool.
  2. For the icing, beat the butter until soft.
  3. Add the sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, and pinch of salt. Beat until light and fluffy.
  4. Incorporate 2 tablespoons of the milk, adding any additional milk one tablespoon at a time, if needed.
  5. Once the cakes are cool, add a crumb coat of icing by spreading between each layer (it doesn’t have to be perfect), and refrigerate.
  6. Once the crumb coat is set, use more icing to make an even coat around the cake, and refrigerate again.


Tip: Make multiple batches of icing so you have enough for a crumb coat, a top coat, and for decorating.
