    My family loves this cake! It’s moist and delicious. I only used about 2 tablespoons of store bought lime juice and squeezed the rest myself. I would suggest if using fresh lime juice to up the amount to perhaps 1/3 cup as I was hoping for more lime flavor. I did not make the icing as presented and instead opted for a homemade marshmallow icing which paired well with the cake!
