Best Lemon Cake
Vons Markets actually make fairly good cakes. I was extremely impressed with a half-sheet cake that I ordered for a birthday celebration. Not only was the frosting and lemon layer excellent but the cake itself was light and rich like a cake from Hanson's Bakery. You can order any kind of cake you like at any Von's for a decent price. I paid under $35.00 for a three layer 1/2 sheet cake which beats out any privately owned bakery. The picture is the cake I ordered. I asked for pale pink decorations and asked them to write only "Happy Birthday" on the cake. It was gorgeous and tasted great!
