Lemon Daffodil Cake

1 box white cake mix (plus ingredients to make it)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice (don't use purchased lemon juice-it tends to be bitter)
White buttercream icing

Bake cake mix according to instructions on the box. I bake mine in a flower shaped silicon pan but you can make two 8" or one 9" round.

Let the cake cool completely, then split it through the middle.

Mix together sweetened condensed milk with fresh squeezed lemon juice. When the milk has become thick, spread half of it on the bottom layer of the cake.

Put the top on layer on the cake and spread the remaining milk mixture on the top. My mother always used a two layer round cake and she iced the sides with a white butter cream icing. I prefer it without the icing because it's less sweet, but the icing is very pretty.
