Ingredients:

1 bottle about the size of a Twinkie
1 sheet twelve 12 x 14 inch pieces of aluminum foil
1 piece pastry bag
1 piece toothpick
---CAKE:
4 large egg whites
1 package golden pound cake mix -- (16 ounce)
2/3 cup water
1 spray Nonstick spray
---FILLING:
2 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup vegetable shortening
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup evaporated milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 drops lemon extract
 

Preparation / Directions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Fold each piece of foil in half twice. Wrap the folded foil around the bottle to create a mold. Leave the top open for pouring the batter in. Make twelve of these molds and arrange on a cookie sheet. Spray the inside of each with nonstick spray. Beat the egg whites until stiff. Combine with cake mix and water, and beat about 2 minutes until thoroughly blended. Pour batter into molds, filling each about 3/4 inch deep. Bake about 30 minutes, or until the cake is golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean from the center. For the filling, cream the butter and shortening. Slowly add the sugars while beating. Add the evaporated milk, vanilla and lemon extracts. Mix on medium speed until completely smooth and fluffy. When the cakes are done and cooled, use a toothpick to make three small holes in the bottom of each one. Move the toothpick around the inside of each cake to make room for filling. Using the pastry bag, inject each cake with filling through all three holes.
