Italian Lemon Cream Cake

This cake is so moist and with a layer of creamy cheese and we top it with a wonderful mix of berries in a delicate glaze. Our Italian Lemon Cream Cake is a beautiful slice of cake on the serving dish, with the delicious berries on top. We have served this cake for for special occasions, ladies luncheon's, teas, graduations, weddings and anniversaries. Then sometimes we make it for a "Just Because Day" for someone special in your life.
