Lemon Pound Cake With Cream Cheese Frosting (YUM)

I’ll give you a minute to wrap your head around that delicious title. While I do? I’ll stuff a couple more mouthfuls of this cake into my mouth. Generally speaking, I do not have much of a sweet tooth, I tend to snack on salty snacks instead. Miss Vicki’s Sea Salt and Vinegar chips? YES PLEASE. However, I DO have a minor weakness for lemon cake and anything topped with cream cheese frosting. Whenever I make this frosting, I literally have to make a touch more than I need, because it always finds itself into my mouth before it gets onto any cake or cupcake. Yummy with a capital “Y”.

The following recipe is a ‘doctored’ boxed cake mix, and you can use premade icing if you want to speed things up even more. Enjoy!
