Caribbean Coconut Lime Cake is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Caribbean Coconut Lime Cake Wonderful, delicious cake. Have made it 3 times, and it has been a big hit every time. Baking it this week for the birthday of a guy who says it has to be the best cake he has ever eaten. The lime cream is delicious on its own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake 5 times last year even using the mini pans once to make personal cakes. I made them for family I visited while vacationing, for work, for my home, and one lime and one lemon as Christmas gifts. All were loved and devoured. This cake has been a favorite of at least one person every time I've served it. Try lemon as an exciting alternative!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I added coconut flavor to the cake and to the icing and used the frozen fresh coconut to finish it. I also used key lime juice instead of plain lime juice. It was so easy to make and super yummy.
