Coconut-Lime Cake

This cake is known as a butter cake, made by creaming butter with sugar until the mixture is soft, smooth and pale yellow in color. When adding the flour, eggs and other ingredients to the mixture, do not overwork it or you may destroy the air bubbles and the lightening effect of the creaming.

Delicious!

Cake was light and moist. Very yummy. After reading reviews, I opted to make a traditional Seven Minute Frosting, which is light as a feather delicious...well worth the effort!

Great Cake

This cake is absolutely delicious, but I have never been able to get the icing to work out right. It's still good, but the icing for me has always been a problem.

We always called this 7 minute frosting or white mountain frosting. It works best if you make it on a day with low humidity.

Amazing texture, delicious cake
July 20, 2010
I baked this as a birthday cake for my sister. I was amazed at how moist, airy, and delicious the actual cake was.
I did not care that much for the frosting. The amount of sugar/corn syrup makes it painfully sweet. There is not enough of a tart flavor from the lime to balance it out.
I made the frosting twice, because the first time, I thought I must have done it wrong. But the second time around, it had the same consistency. It both looked and tasted a bit like marshmallow fluff, shiny and creamy.
The second batch of frosting I made went better with the cake, bec I added about half the sugar and corn syrup.
I also toasted my coconut to provide a bit of color.
All in all, this cake tasted amazing and was easy to prepare. It was also beautiful. Add a bigger hit of lime, and experiment with other frostings that might complement the cake more.
