I am planning on having a small get-together with some of my friends this weekend and I am planning on making a cake for the occation. The theme of the party is light green, almost lime, and so I need to make a delicous cake in the color green, perhaps lime? Is there such a cake or should I color another cake using green food coloring? Thank you!

Even using real limes to flavour the cake won't give it the green colour. (never actually had lime cake, I don't know how that would go?) You would need to add green food dye to the cake batter

What about a pistachio cake? If you add a box of pistachio pudding to your mix it should give you that light green color you are looking for. HTH

You can make a velvet cake in any color you want. You will probably have to eliminate the cocoa powder that is normally added to red velvet cake, but what the heck? As long as the buttermilk is in there, the cake will be tender.

Duff made a blue velvet cake when he appeared on one of Paula Deen's shows.

My mom said someone brought a key lime cake to work and it was delicious. You could google it and see what you come up with. I saw a few options when I googled it.

How about lemon cake tinted with a little green. You can also buy key lime flavoring in the little bottles, I think they are by LouAnn.

just some suggestions -

If you're going to go lime, either try a very light dose of Boyajian Lime Oil or Nellie and Joe's Key Lime Juice - this juice is double strength, and will give you a lot of lime flavor.

Coconut and lime was the en vogue lime combination last year. I prefer lime and white chocolate.

Just another suggestion -

I just scanned through 50 pages of google to find a lime ganache recipe - I got inspired to search because of all the lime suggestions on this thread.

Some of the more recent blog entries are using lime with raspberry or blueberry.

I also saw a lot of matcha green tea recipes you could try.
