Heat oven to 177°C (163°Cfor dark or nonstick pans). Grease bottoms only of two 20- or 23-cmround cake pans with shortening (do not use cooking spray).

Make, bake and cool cake as directed on box for 20- or 23-cmrounds. Refrigerate layers 45 minutes for easier handling.

Meanwhile, in large bowl, beat cream cheese, milk and 1 tablespoon lemon peel with electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Beat in whipping cream and powdered sugar. Beat on high speed, scraping bowl occasionally, until stiff peaks form.

Slice each cake layer in half horizontally to make a total of 4 layers. (To cut, mark side of cake with toothpicks and cut with long, thin knife.) Fill each layer with 1/2 cup whipped cream mixture. Frost side and top of cake with remaining whipped cream mixture. Garnish with additional lemon twist. Store covered in refrigerator.
