    I was very impressed by this cake. I have never tried a Martha Stuart recipe, and after this cake, I am a convert. The white cake is moist but fluffy. The lemon curd is spot on. The frosting is like a soft meringue, which I love. I also learned how to make pipe damn for the filling, which is a game changer for me. I will absolutely make this again. I will most likely not make any adjustments.

    I was very disappointed with this birthday cake. Why is there 3 sticks of butter in a white cake that is supposed to be light and fluffy? The lemon curd and frosting were fine but the cake was so heavy . More like a pound cake than a white cake....My guests were very polite and ate their pieces but nobody wanted to take a piece home with them...Never doing this recipe again...

    Made the cakes and the lemon curd Saturday. (Lemon curd is very tasty, but too much for a single layer) Very stiff cake batter, very hard to fold in the egg whites. Baked it in 3 9" pans - 2 pans would have been too small. Took longer to bake than stated - even in 3 pans. Made frosting on Sunday - very good but enough to cover two 3 layer cakes. Once assembled, cakes slipped and slid on the curd filling. Had to use skewers to keep the layers lined up. NOT EVER MAKING THIS ENTIRE RECIPE AGAIN.

    Outstanding! I am a pie maker, not comfortable with cakes. In the past I was successful with a Martha's chocolate cake recipe so I went on MS web site to look for my next challenge, a white cake recipe. This recipe is a great find for me. My guests all requested I make this cake again. It was all I wanted it to be, similar to what my grandmother made. This recipe has given me the confidence to volunteer to make friends or family a birthday cake. I did not make the lemon curd.

    I didn't like folding in the egg white mixture because it left pockets of egg white that baked differently (or didn't bake) than the rest of the cake. I wouldn't make this cake again, especially since it didn't really taste that great after baking. I'd rather save the time and money and make a white cake mix or a yellow cake.

    This cake was very good. The lemon filling was perfect for summertime. I opted to use a butter cream frosting instead of the 7 minute frosting, and they paired nicely.

    I made this for my daughter's birthday cake and it was a huge success! I made a tiered cake using 2 9-inch rounds and 2 6-inch rounds, using two batches of batter; the 6-inch round batch made the rounds and 8 cupcakes (which were used to "test" the frosting and lemon filling). The cakes had a light crumb, but help up to the lemon filling and strawberry frosting amazingly well.
