    This was an absolute hit at my birthday.
    The only problem I had was, you couldn't taste the White Chocolate at all. So I would suggest using 1 teaspoon of lemon peel, or none at all. Or Add more White Chocolate. I did Rainbow layered cake and this recipe can make 3 half layers of 9in round pans. So I made this twice. In stead of it tasting like White Chocolate my friends and family said it tasted like the cereal Fruity Pebbles which made it a huge success either way. I'll be making this recipe into cupcakes next!
