Secret Recipe Revealed - Key Lime Cake
I have to be honest. This is my favorite cake. I always hope that whenever a birthday comes along, it will be the cake chosen. I always know it will be MY birthday cake. It can be done as a bundt cake, but as I love my butter cream frosting, my wife always makes this as a layer cake. Yes, it is a modification of a cake mix, but I have never tasted a key lime cake any better that was done from scratch! Hope you like it as much as I do!
