I owe it all to this recipe. This is the first recipe that I made from this website for a Family Labor Day Celebration 2 years ago. I put the cake down and sat down for a game of cards and turned around and wondered what all the commotion was about. I walked over to where the cake was (atleast what was left) and those people had scraped the platter clean. Since then I have made minor changes though. And they are still scraping the platter clean. Now I make 1-1/2 of the cream cheese frosting recipe. Please use the real key limes for the juice to go into the frosting, I know they are a pain to squeeze, but the taste is amazing. Don't be afraid to add another Tbs. of Key Lime Juice either. Then I make sure that I add atleast 2 tsp. of Meringue Powder for a firm icing. And lastly, I add atleast another cup or so of powder sugar to kindof work with the tart Key Lime Juice. But I like the sweet and tart to play off of one another. Enjoy!!!

I love this cake. It is very rich. I like to make my frosting with just a little lime jello mixed in it gives it a lovely green color. I also add chopped pecans to the frosting. We have topped this cake with cherries or strawberries for the red and green christmas colors.

This recipe is DELICIOUS. I made cupcakes with it. I did add the zest of a small lime and fresh lime juice to the batter, for some extra lime flavor. I also used 5 eggs and 3/4 cups of oil instead, as previous reviewers suggested. I tried one without frosting, it was moist and light and the flavor was delicious. I frosted them with "Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting" from this site (with lime juice and zest instead of lemons). I used fresh limes for everything. With the frosting, the cupcakes really do have a tangy lime flavor. Mmmm mmmm mmm, just what I was looking for!
