Our Disclaimer (The serious stuff)

By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Fold 12 pieces of aluminum foil 13/4 (top) 4-inch length in half twice. Wrap the folded foil around a small spice bottle to creatr a mold. Leave the top of the mold open for pouring in the batter. Arrange them on a cookie sheet or in a shallow pan. Grease the inside of each mold with a light coating of nonstick spray. Disregard the directions on the box of cake mix, instead beat the egg whites until stiff. Combine them with the cake mix and water and beat until thoroughly blended about 2 minutes. Pour the batter into the molds, fillng each one about 3/4 inch. Bake for about 30 minutes or until the cake is golden brown and a toothpick stuck in the center comes out clean. For the filling cream the butter and shortening, slowly add the sugars while beating. Add the evaporated milk, vanilla and lemon extract. Mix on medium speed until completely smooth and fluffy. When the cakes are done and cooled, use a tooth pick to make three small holes in the bottom of each one. Move the toothpick around the inside of each cake to create space for the filling. Using a cake decorator or plastic bag or pastry bag inject each cake with filling through all three holes.
