Recipe of the Day: Paula's Easy Pink Lemonade Layer Cake

Paula takes the quintessential lemony summer sip and transforms it into an easy, yet show-stopping layer cake. To a simple boxed cake mix, she adds grated lemon zest, pink lemonade and vanilla.

After the cakes have cooled, Paula spreads a thin layer of butter frosting, made with butter and confectioners' sugar, between the two cakes. Using an offset spatula, she spreads the remaining frosting over the top and sides of both layers.
