Frosting recipe below
Place the baked and cooled cake layers top side up in two clean9-inch cake pans. Using a large fork, pierce cake at 1/2-inch intervals.
Empty the lemon gelatin into a medium mixing bowl. Add the boiling water and stir until all gelatin is dissolved. Carefully pour half of the liquid gelatin over one of the cake layers. Repeat the process with the remaining layer and gelatin. Refrigerate for 3 hours.
Dip one of the layers into a pan of warm water for 10-12 seconds; unmold onto the cake plate. Spread a cup of the frosting (recipe follows) on top of the layer. Dip the second layer into warm water and unmold atop the frosted layer. Use remaining frosting to frost top and sides of cake. Refrigerate at least an hour before cutting to serve.
