We have made this for several occasions and it is always a hit! It is super creamy and slightly tangy. We have done the green swirl, but don't bother anymore. My husband just puts a lime twist on top of the cake and a little whipped cream for decoration. We have sometimes skipped the nuts, and it is good either way.
