Lucky Number 200!

What is this?  Why yes, it is my 200th post as a matter of fact!  I feel like I should do something fun to celebrate.  Let's brainstorm... how do I normally celebrate things?  Well, eating of course.  I guess I could make a cake, but that's not much fun for you guys.  Here's the next best thing I guess- a recipe for a cake!  What's next?  Music and dancing!  I've got just the commercial for us today!  But I still feel like we're missing something.... ah!  Yes, that's it- a stupid pun.  We're missing a pun.  See below (if you dare).  There! Celebration complete!

Lemon Cream Cake
1/2 c vegetable shortening
1 c white sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp lemon juice
2 tsp grated lemon peel
2 c white flour
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 c sour cream
Preheat oven to 350.  Grease and lightly flour two 9 in. round cake pans.  Beat all ingredients together for several minutes until smooth.  Bake for approximately 20-30 mins. or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Do not overcook.  Cool completely before frosting.
Lemon Buttercream Frosting
1/2 c butter, softened
4 c confectioners' sugar
4-5 tbsp lemon juice
Cream the butter and sugar.  Add lemon juice one tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is achieved.  Add a few drops of yellow food coloring if you like.
