SMALL Key Lime Cake - Easter Never Tasted This Good caked all iced _feature

This Key Lime Cake is sweet but tangy and oh so delicious!  It has the perfect kind of melt in your mouth combinations that will have you coming back for seconds and thirds!  I had a key lime cake for the first time over one of my best friend’s home.  She made it for her husband’s birthday and MAN oh MAN that thing was something good.  It was so good that it stuck in my head and I could not release it until I made one myself!  Well I did it and BAM POW KABOOM!  YEP you got it HOME RUN!  Out the park baby!  I’ve made it for gatherings since my first one and it always ends the same way with people fighting over the last slice!  OH YEAH!  This is the perfect any time dessert but I thought it would be particularly special for Easter!  Hope you get to try it out ~ you surely will not regret it!

Just mixing up a little green love.
