Oh, Dearest Mother, Sweetest Virgin of Altagracia, our Patroness. You are our Advocate and to you we recommend our needs. You are our Teacher and like disciples we come to learn from the example of your holy life. You are our Mother, and like children, we come to offer you all of the love of our hearts. Receive, dearest Mother, our offerings and listen attentively to our supplications. Amen.

Bake a lemon cake as per box directions in 9X13 pan.
While it is baking, thaw a 6 oz can of frozen lemonade concentrate (If you can't find a 6 oz, use part of a large can)
Mix thawed lemonade concentrate with 1 cup powdered sugar.
Poke holes in top of cake while warm with a wooden spoon. Pour lemonade concentrate/powdered sugar mix over warm cake and let it cool completely (I chilled mine in the fridge)
Frost with cool whip and garnish with slices of fresh lemon. This is best when kept chilled. Very refreshing! Pretty tart but very tasty!

I did not add the cool whip topping and I used the large size lemonade concentrate, because I could not find the recipe. I will not make that mistake again.   
I did have some whipped cream in the fridge that I whipped earlier in the week and added that to the cake. It was quite tasty!
Also, if you do not put some sort of topping on the cake you may want to poke it with a fork, I had all these big holes in the cake and it looked a little funny!

Mary Chris,

I made this cake Tuesday night for our Catholic hs moms' bunco group. It got rave reviews. We all enjoyed this perfect summertime cake--light and refreshing.

Thank you!

Your sister in Christ,
