This was the cake that my dad used to request for his birthday every year. For a wedding present 2 years ago, my aunt Marilyn included this recipe in a family cookbook for me.

I've made this cake for my children(see photo below), grandchildren and great-grandchildren. It is their favorite birthday cake...it's light and tasty, and lends itself beautifully to decorating. I often place a small arrangement of fresh flowers in the center.
This cake recipe was given to me by my sister-in-law many years ago. It's deliciously light in texture, compatible with any meal and makes a beautiful presentation for special occasions.

This was my mom's favorite special-occasion cake. When I was in high school, she often asked me to make it for her. The homemade brittle gives it a satisfying crunch. —Phyllis Murphey, Lower Lake, California
"I first made this lovely lightly textured cake for my husband for Valentine's day more than 25 years ago," recalls Pat Eastman of Provo, Utah. "It's perfect for any special occasion. As an alternative, I've decorated the top with chocolate kisses."
The next time you spot lovely little limes at the grocery store, pick some up and make this outstanding cake! A cool, refreshing curd peeks out from every tender slice.—Redawna Kalynchuk, Sexsmith, Alberta
My husband doesn't like chocolate cake, but this spectacular three-layer torte is a favorite of his. I've been using this recipe for special occasions such as birthdays for many years. —Megan Shepherdson, Winnipeg, Manitoba
I WAS LOOKING for an unusual recipe to enter in competition at the local county fair. It seemed that unusual cakes and pies won, so I looked through my Mother’s old recipes and found this. I love pineapple, so thought I would give this a try. It was a big hit with my husband and brought me a blue ribbon at the fair!
