If you’re looking for a dessert with a full-on celebration of lime, this Mojito Cake is it! This cake is filled with light and fluffy white cake layers infused with mint and lime, lime curd filling, and mint buttercream. The inspiration for this cake flavor actually comes from a BCAA flavor from my friends at Perk. Neither the lime nor the mint is too strong in this cake, but the cake certainly is creamy! Just imagine taking a bite of a cloud-like piece of cake with subtle flavors of mint and lime. You’ll feel like you’re in a dream with every bite of this cake!

Lime Curd Dessert #2: Coconut Key Lime Pie Cake

I’m sure you’ve tried the common dessert, key lime pie, before. As you know, I am not a huge fan of pie, so like many pie flavors, I’ve turned this one into a cake! And I even added coconut to go with it, and it tastes so amazing! This Coconut Key Lime Pie Cake has the perfect balance of sweet and tart with the coconut cake layers and buttercream and lime curd filling. As one who is not a huge fan of key lime pie, this cake is so satisfying! So, if you’re not a huge fan of it either, I think you’ll still enjoy this cake!

Lime Curd Dessert #3: Rainbow Sherbet Cake

This bright and colorful Rainbow Sherbet Cake will help you feel like there is warm sunshine beaming down no matter what time of year it is! I know we are talking about lime curd desserts in this post, but this cake has a twist. I actually use a raspberry lime curd in it, and it’s so good! This cake is filled with tender yellow cake layers, raspberry lime curd, and orange buttercream. And, you guys, I have to say these cake flavors are out of this world! It’ll bring all the nostalgia from eating sherbet ice cream back when you were a kid. I think you will really love this one!
