We love Olive Garden but we no longer live near one which means I am on my own to try and make copycat recipes. This is a copycat recipe for Olive Garden’s Lemon Creme Cake. If you haven’t had it before you are in for a real treat, it’s divine. It’s the perfect dessert to have after this Zuppa Toscana an Olive Garden Copycat Soup Recipe.
