Lime Cream Torte

This impressive-looking dessert is surprisingly simple to prepare. Light and refreshing, it's a super make-ahead treat- the flavor gets getter as it sits in the refrigerator. I've had many requests for the recipe.

    This cake is extremely easy to make and like everyone else has said, the longer it fridgerates/older it gets the better it tastes! My co-workers really enjoyed it!

    I love this cake also, and anytime I take it to a cook out or to a luncheon I am always asked for the recipe...I press a lime out to flaten and use it for a palm tree leaves, use a sliver of carrot for the tree base...makes for a lovely decoration of top of the cake

    We love this cake, I make it all the time, but I use Key Lime juice instead. It reminds us of past vacations.
