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
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!
