I absolutely love the moist and delicious lemon flavor of the popular 7-Up. This cake was so good right out of the oven, that I was stumped with the question of to icing or not to icing? … The answer to that is, It’s completely up to you. 7up cake is delicious by itself or with a nice lemon glaze over the top. I also topped this bad boy with some sweet vanilla ice cream, took a seat, and enjoyed every bite. Yes I so deserved it.
Preparing this cake was easy but not quick. At least for me it was not
