This glorious lemon cake starts with a yellow cake mix. But we've added a few layers of scrumptiousness—including a meringue topping.

Step 1
Heat oven to 350ºF.
Step 2
Prepare cake batter and bake as directed on package for 2 (9-inch) round layers, blending half the lemon zest into batter before pouring into prepared pans. Cool cakes in pans 10 min. Invert onto wire racks; gently remove pans. Cool cakes completely.
Step 3
Meanwhile, mix corn starch and 2 Tbsp. sugar in medium saucepan. Gradually stir in water. Bring to boil on medium heat; cook 8 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add dry jelly powder; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Stir in lemon juice and remaining zest. Refrigerate 40 min. or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally.
Step 4
Heat oven to 450ºF. Place 1 cake layer on parchment paper-covered baking sheet. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar in small bowl with mixer on high speed until foamy. Gradually beat in remaining sugar until stiff peaks form; spread onto top of cake layer on prepared baking sheet. Bake 5 to 7 min. or until meringue is golden brown.
Step 5
Place remaining cake layer on serving plate; spread with jelly mixture, then Cool Whip. Top with meringue-topped cake layer.
