I just had a thought. What if instead of filling the center with plain whip cream you filled it with a combo of whip cream AND cheesecake filling? do y0ou think that would be any good? Or should i just stick to whip cream alone?

Reviewer: Lisa
It looks EXCELLENT! I'm planning on making this dessert to take over for Easter dinner. The photo you have of the finished product is beautiful and we do have lemon lovers in the family so I'm hoping it will be a hit! I will let you know!!!

I made it for my family and they enjoyed it very much. They want me to make it all the time.

Reviewer: Rajni Ratwani
It's too good and yummy, but I don't have icing, so what should I do to make it more attractive?

Reviewer: Diana
Hi Rajni, This gelatine dessert does not need an icing. Just decorate it with fresh fruit or whipped cream if you like. This will make it more attractive........Diana, Diana's Desserts
