*Makes one layered cake or 20-24 cupcakes


***Canna-cook level – Medium or “Experienced edibles maker”

Ingredients –

For the cake-

  • 1 lemon flavored boxed cake mix weighing 15.25 oz
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup oil or melted butter
  • Lemon zest or lemon twist curls for garnish

For the buttercream-

  • 2 Sticks of salted, room temp butter
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp hazelnut coffee creamer
  • 1 DropTrue TerpenesTerpinoleneextract

Kitchen tools needed –

Two 9″ cake pans or two 12 slot cupcake pans, baking spray and flour or parchment

liner for cake/ cupcake pans, stand or hand mixer, metal palette knife and piping bag

for icing your cakes.

Preheat oven to 350°


  • Grease and line your cake pans/ cupcake pans
  • Empty the contents of your lemon cake mix package into a large mixing bowl (or bowl for your mixer) with the milk and the melted butter. Turn your mixer on low for one minute and let the ingredients blend.
  • Then you will slowly increase the speed while adding the eggs one at a time until your ingredients are all combined into a velvety batter that drips in ribbons off of your rubber spatula.
  • Now, fill your cake or cupcake pans and follow the bake time on the box.
  • As those bake, you will make your buttercream frosting. Start with the two sticks of room temp butter in the bowl of a stand mixer, and beat the butter on medium until it is smooth.
  • Next, turn your mixer speed to low, and add in the 4 cups of Powdered sugar in ½ a cup at a time, and let it mix for 1 to 2 minutes before you add in the 2 tbsps of hazelnut creamer and 1 drop of Terpinolene, and mix on low for 1 to 2 minutes while scraping down the sides (you can add 1 more tbsp of creamer if you need a little more moisture).
  • When you take the cakes out of the oven, let them cool for at least an hour before attempting to ice them.
  • Once your cakes are cooled, ice them in your preferred style then garnish with lemon zest or a lemon twist ribbon. I served mine with a nug of Jack Herer so that my friends could compare for themselves, and we all were wowed by the similarity! I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
