This seashell decorated lemon cake is dubbed the Lemon Meltaway Cake for its uncanny flavor resemblance to the Lemon Meltaway cookie. However, the flavor is about the only thing the Lemon Meltaway cookie has in common with this summery cake. The beautiful cake features blue seashells that pop off of the bright yellow-like icing.

There are three layers to this zesty lemon cake. Each layer is infused with a burst of lemon flavor that consumes the taste buds. The cake is made with a fluffy filling and homemade lemon icing that amplifies the fruity flavor even more.

Each of the shell-like decorations is created from a buttercream base. They are called kisses but the blue lines indicate a striking resemblance to seashells. Since summer is the perfect time to enjoy a light fruit cake, the shell accents make perfect sense.
