I made this for fathers day dinner and we all really liked it. I didn't put the limes on top but it was still very pretty and yummy!
I made this cake for a Ladies Brunch and everyone liked it.In the center I placed 1 slice of lime surrounded by slices of strawberries,it looked like a flower.It is pretty to look at and delicious.I will be making it again.
Not a rating because I haven't tried it yet. Sounds good though. How about candying the lime slices? You would still get the benefit of the pretty garnish but with a more pleasing taste.
The cake was fine, but the lime slices on top had to be removed prior to slicing. They looked pretty thou one could not expect to be eating a sour piece of lime (since you listed them as optional). Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.
I have had this recipe for a long time. It is a great recipe and does not take long to make. I have made this with dream whip or cool whip and it still tastes great. For the decorations on top I take a few strawberries dipped in white chocolate and leave the green tops on with a couple of twisted lemon slices. Looks terrific as well as tastes great. This recipe is a old Kraft recipe.
