Cake of the Week: Key Lime Pound Cake and Key Lime Buttercream Frosting

August 12, 2013 | By | Comments (0)

I’ve got two separate recipes for you today. They aren’t paired together, but I think someone should definitely give it a try.

First up is Key Lime Pound Cake. Key lime is a wonderful summer flavor. Add it to pies, cupcakes, ice cream, or whatever you want, and you’ve got a tropical summer treat. What I like about a good pound cake is that the cake is so incredible on its own. You don’t need a fancy frosting; just a glaze or a little drizzle and it’s perfect. Because this is a Key lime pound cake, it has a Key lime glaze, of course!

If you’re like me, you love a good pound cake, but you also love thick layers of frosting. I knew I had to share this Key Lime Buttercream Frosting as soon as I came across it. In the picture below, the frosting looks so thick and fluffy. I love the way it was swirled and spread onto the cake. The pound cake and the frosting don’t have to be used together, but I certainly don’t think it would be a bad thing if they were! The frosting could be used on many other flavors of cake as well. White cake, lemon, strawberry, maybe even chocolate. I would love to experiment with some graham cracker crumbs in cake batter to create a graham cracker cake with this Key Lime Buttercream. I really enjoy taking flavors that are traditionally used in one dessert form, like pie, and converting them to another form, like cake.
