Lemon Poppyseed Cake

Carla, my favorite displaced American blogger who lives in the Great White North, posted this yesterday. Not only does it sound delicious, it's also healthier than the original version of the recipe! I've included the ingredients list, click over for instructions.

1 pkg. (2-layer size) lemon cake mix
1 pkg. (85 g) Jell-O Lemon Jelly Powder (sugar free)
1-1/4 cups water
1/2 cup oil unsweetened applesauce
4 eggs
1/4 cup poppy seed
1/2 cup (1/2 of 250-g tub) (light or reduced calorie) Philadelphia Cream Cheese Spread
2 Tbsp. butter, softened
1 cup icing sugar, sifted
2 Tbsp. shredded peel and 1 Tbsp. juice from 1 lemon, divided
*alternatively - use freshly whipped cream with a dash of lemon flavoring for the "frosting"
