Sparkling Lemon Cake with Lemon Cream Frosting

My husband loves lemon, so this is a cake I put together with him in mind.  I am so grateful for 27 wonderful years with my best friend!

Sparkling Lemon Cake:
1 lemon cake mix
3 eggs
1¹⁄3 cups sparkling white grape juice
1/3 cup oil
2 tsp vanilla paste (can use vanilla extract)
zest of 1 lemon

Preheat oven to 350°.  In large bowl with electric mixer, mix cake mix, eggs, sparkling juice, oil, vanilla paste, and zest until well combined.  Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.  Pour into two well sprayed 8″ or 9″ pans.  Bake 25- 30 minutes or until golden and pick inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool in pans about 15 minutes, remove cakes from pans and cool completely on wire racks.

Lemon Cream Frosting:
1/2 cup butter, melted & cooled
2 Tbl lemon curd
2 cup powdered sugar
1 (8 oz) Cool Whip topping, thawed

Melt butter in large microwave safe bowl, cool, and stir in lemon curd.  Stir in powdered sugar.  Fold Cool Whip topping into butter mixture.

With serrated knife, slice off top of cake layers to make level if needed.  Place one layer on serving plate, spread half of frosting over cake, place second cake layer and cover with remaining frosting.  Keep cake refrigerated.
