I was wondering if anyone has made a keylime wedding cake before? Did it hold up good? Was the cake sturdy and moist? I have a request for one but I've never made one. Any info and recipe that you have would be great and much needed.

Thanks
Stephanie

I would find a good lemon cake recipe and then sub keylime juice and lime zest (use reg. limes for this, keylimes are really hard to zest) for the lemon in the cake.

Thanks for the reply!
I was thinking the same thing but I wasn't sure how it would hold up for a wedding cake. Do you think it will be to moist? I haven't had much luck with lemon.

Thanks again
Stephanie

Have you tried doing a pound cake? Here's a great citrus pound cake recipe: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Citrus-Pound-Cake-241214 just sup key lime juice for the orange and lemon juices and lime zest for the orange and lemon zests. You may need to expirement with the amount of juice and zest a bit to get the right flavor intensity.

OR...you can use your regular vanilla cake with some lemon zest, and add some limoncello liquor to the syrop. syrop will keep your cake moist.

Dorie Greenspan's Perfect Party Cake is a lemon white cake that everyone I've made it for loved and it is study enough to cover in fondant and stack tiers (it is the cake I used in my Avatar). You can google and find the recipe, then just substitute with limes, now I have a new flavor to try too icon_smile.gif.

I haven't made any recipe from her recent cookbook yet that I didn't like. The Devil's Food is outrageous if you are looking for a rich chocolate cake. That one also holds up to fondant well.

I don't mean so sound dumb but, does she have any books out? I'd love to get one. The cakes sound delicious.

My wedding cake was key lime. I BELIEVE (and I'm not sure because it was part of a package, so I didn't really get to pick it) that it was white cake with key lime butter cream and a lime simple syrup on the cake. It was super moist and SSOOOOO yummy.

for lemon cake, I make Serious_Cake's yellow cake recipe (its very white in color) and add 1tsp lemon extract and the zest of two whole lemons. It's very moist but hold up to fondant too.
