"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

1 package of yellow cake mix (w/ pudding in the mix)
1 package instant lemon pudding mix
4 eggs
3/4 c. oil
3/4 c. water

Lemon Icing:

1/2 box powdered sugar, sifted (If you don't hate sifting more than I)
1/3 c. lemon juice OR MORE
Two tbsp. melted butter
One tbsp. water

Combine yellow cake and lemon pudding mixes with eggs, oil and water. Mix well, 2-3 minutes with mixer. Turn into greased bundt pan. Bake at 325 F for 40-50 minutes OR until cake springs back when lightly touched.

While warm, pierce surface of cake with ice pick all the way to the bottom. Pour 1/2 lemon icing over bottom while in pan, wait 30 minutes and pour rest of icing over top when cake is on a plate. Be sure to get the sides. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Garnish with flowers, tiki umbrellas (to go with the Mai Tai's at The Beach Club) or anything else that fits the occasion!
