Are you looking for a yummy green dessert? If you love tricks with cake mix, you are sure to enjoy this Key Lime Cake!
My husband, Stacy has developed a love of baking and a reputation for being a good baker among our family and friends. Two of his most requested are this Key Lime Cake and his Strawberry Cake with Strawberry Buttercream Frosting.
Confession time! Stacy bakes the cakes and makes the frostings but he prefers me to frost and decorate them. I consider that to be the fun part. Don’t be hard on me, I am not a professional cake decorator! I just do simple easy things to make it more pleasing for our guests to enjoy.
I shaved the peeling from fresh limes and used the shavings to decorate this Key Lime cake and then added a few fresh pecan halves. Living in Georgia where pecans are abundant, we put pecans in and on everything!
