    SweetsLady's Note:

    This is another Paula Deen magazine recipe that we loved. I always have Key lime juice on hand, so when I saw the recipe I had to try it. The cake is light with a yummy white chocolate frosting.

      As much as I like following a recipe right on down the first time around, I also like using a lot of the indicated citrus zest! So I was very generous with the key lime zest in this recipe (forget being subtle!), & we had a wonderfully flavorful dessert with this one! Loved the frosting, too, & will be making this cake again, for sure! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made &reviewed in Zaar Cookbook Tag]

      Although this is a very moist and delicious cake, I did not get the key lime flavor I was looking for. I think something is missing in this recipe. If you want a good cake try this one but if you want a strong key lime taste this is not it.
