This a great cake with which to celebrate during the summer! The flavor of lemon against cream cheese frosting cannot be beaten.
If you like to decorate it with a beautiful bunting, you can make one easily. You can find the bunting template here.
You can also garnish with candied lemon peel, by following the directions here. (I made a half recipe.)
